This crayfish and prawn cocktail salad is ready in just 10 minutes. Serve it as a light starter at your next party.

Ingredients

  • 2 x 200g tubs chilled prawn cocktail
  • 350g cooked and peeled crayfish
  • 1 lemon
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • Fresh chives
  • Gem lettuce hearts
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Rustic bread loaf

Method

  1. Tip the tubs of prawn cocktail into a large bowl, along with the crayfish (or use cooked, mixed seafood).
  2. Add a generous pinch of cayenne pepper, the lemon juice and a handful snipped fresh chives.
  3. Season and gently mix together. Separate the leaves from 4 little gem lettuce hearts and arrange on 6 starter plates, overlapping them slightly. Top with the cocktail mixture and sprinkle with extra cayenne pepper and a few more snipped chives, to garnish.
  4. Serve with rustic bread (we like a walnut loaf) and a lemon, cut into wedges, to squeeze over.
