Mini Prawn Cocktail

Fresh king prawns with rocket, croutons, bacon, lemon and mayonnaise, all served on a single spoon - perfect for a party.
Active Time: 1 minute
Total Time: 1 minute
Servings: 1 spoon


  • 1 cooked king prawn
  • A couple of rocket leaves
  • A crouton
  • A pinch of crispy bacon bits
  • Half a slice of lemon
  • A squirt of Heinz [Seriously] Good Mayonnaise
  • A twist of pepper


  • Lay a couple of rocket leaves flat on your spoon.
  • Crush your crouton (either using a pestle and mortar, or by putting it into a plastic bag, covering with a tea towel and then bashing it with something heavy like a rolling pin) and then sprinkle the crushed crouton and a pinch of crispy bacon bits onto the rocket.
  • Lay the half slice of lemon onto the spoon and then place the prawn onto it.
  • Add a squeeze of mayonnaise into the middle of the prawn (I put my mayo into a piping bag with a star nozzle attached to get it looking really pretty).
  • Season with a twist of pepper.
  • Repeat until you've made as many spoons as you want then serve
  • To eat simply slide the lemon out from under the prawn, squeeze it over the top and enjoy.


Recipe makes 1 spoon. Just keep multiplying up to make as many spoons as you like.
