Marie rose sauce is also known as seafood, cocktail or burger sauce this tangy dressing is easily made with a few store cupboard ingredients. It’s often served with seafood and is the sauce used in the classic British dish prawn cocktail. Choose a good quality mayonnaise for the base of the sauce and add more lemon juice to give a runnier consistency if liked. For a less calorific version replace half the mayonnaise with natural yoghurt or half fat crème fraiche.

Ingredients

  • 200ml mayonnaise
  • 2tbsp tomato ketchup
  • ¼tsp cayenne pepper
  • Dash of Tabasco or Worcestershire sauce
  • Squeeze of lemon juice, to taste
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

For a quick and easy starter, mix the sauce with 350g cooked peeled prawns and a little fresh chopped dill. Divide between four individual glasses and garnish each with a sprig of fresh dill.

Method

  1. Place the mayonnaise in a bowl and stir in the tomato ketchup, cayenne pepper and Tabasco or Worcestershire sauce.
  2. Add lemon juice to taste and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Cover and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hrs before serving.
