Spiced Seafood Cocktail

This lighter take on the classic prawn cocktail recipe has a dash of chilli in a light zingy dressing. It’s really easy to make and makes a great sandwich filling or baked potato topping.



  • 300 g raw tiger prawns
  • 1 red chilli
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 limes
  • 2 tbsp fat free fromage frais
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 4 tbsp extra light mayonnaise
  • Fresh mint and Coriander
  • 200 g crab meat



  1. Fry the prawns, chilli and garlic for 2 to 3 minutes. Be careful not to overcook, or the prawns will go tough.
  2. Mix the fromage frais, extra light mayonnaise, ketchup, lime juice and sauces and add the chopped tomatoes and herbs.
  3. Season and mix well.
  4. Layer lettuce, crab meat and cocktail sauce and top with the prawns.
  5. Eat just as it is or in a sandwich or jacket potato filling
