This little treat is like a prawn cocktail in a roll. The tangy dressing brings the prawns to life. Add a dash of brandy to the dressing for an adult version. These also make cute slider buns for a cocktail party.

  • 250g cooked prawns
  • ¾ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp celery salt
  • Cracked pepper
  • ½ iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 1 stalk celery, sliced
  • ½ red onion, finely sliced
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 6 sour dough baps or soft rolls
  1. Thaw the prawns and remove the shells from at least half of them. Combine the mayonnaise, tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, salt and cracked pepper, then add the prawns and let the flavours infuse. Chill until ready to serve.
  2. For the iceberg salad, combine the shredded lettuce with the celery, red onion and toasted sesame seeds.
  3. Halve the buns and fill with the iceberg salad, then top with the tangy prawn mayonnaise.
