If you can find some good ripe mangoes – the keitt variety are around now – forgo the lettuce in glasses, scoop out the stone, put the flesh back and serve the prawns in mango halves, using limes instead of lemons.
Prepare the prawns and marie-rose sauce up to a day ahead and keep them covered, separately, in the fridge.
The best bottle for this has to be a zesty, lemon-fresh Loire Valley sauvignon blanc – choose a sancerre, pouilly-fumé or an inexpensive sauvignon blanc from Touraine.
