Re: seafood sauce

I'd go several stages further - try thi one.

1 tbsp mayonaise
1 tbsp set yoghurt
juice of 1/2 lemon
zest of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp tabasco sauce
1 crushed clove of garlic
1/4 inch ginger, crushed
1/2 tbsp brandy
salt and white pepper to taste
enough good tomato sauce to produce a rose pink colour.

Beat together with a fork in the order given above.

Serves 2.

Re: seafood sauce

the seafood sauce they sell here is just a mix of ketchup ,lemon juice, and good horseradish. I never buy the stuff since i pretty much always have these ingredients on hand and can make it up as needed instead of having a dodgey half full jar hanging around in the fridge who knows how long .

Re: seafood sauce

What you have here big boy is the beginning of a mari rose sauce or a cocktail sauce which is a classic late 18th century sort of seafood fare really which is one of the first sauces that I learnt to make actually. You could be poncey with this and make your own mayonnaise, but you could also use a half decent quality store bought mayonnaise.. if you get 4 big heaped spoonfuls of mayonnaise with 1 heaped spoonful of ketchup, then add 1 spoon full of brandy, a spoon full of lemon juice, 2 good pinches of paprika. Mix this up and season with salt and pepper and I always try and make it slightly too lemony and it will be quite nice and loose then you can spoon it over prawns, crab, lobster, you can toss stuff in it, you can even dip chips in it and you know what it is a little bit junky and it’s kind of every day produce put together with a bit of style and to be honest it’s **** tasty…. When I look at your recipe – prawns cooked on a BBQ, rock and roll rock, then cut an apple into little match sticks, toss this with some nice salad leaves or ice berg lettuce… your recipe sounds pretty bloody good actually. Probably if I was doing this I would just dress the apple and the salad with a simple oil and lemon dressing, keep it fresh and crunchy and dress at the last minute and then just keep the prawns and the mayonnaise together.. sounds pretty **** cool man, well done!

Re: seafood sauce

Ashen,

Agree with you about the cocktail sauce....make my own with ingredients I generally keep about.  To spice it up just a bit, add a dash of Worchestire Sauce and/or Tobasco.  Wicked.  In a pinch the "President's Choice" is a good bet.
