Jody Spencer brings her individual style to some classic dishes to create something a little out of the ordinary
400g peeled, cooked prawns
2 tbsp vodka
4 tbsp mayonnaise (or crème fraiche)
3 tbsp tomato ketchup
Good pinch of celery salt
2 tsp Worcester sauce
¼ tsp Tabasco sauce (or cayenne pepper)
100ml whipping cream
½ tsp vodka
2 heads of chicory, finely shredded
2 ripe avocados, sliced
1 lemon, cut into wedges, pips removed
Place the prawns in a mixing bowl. Stir through 2 tablespoons vodka and leave to marinade.
In a separate bowl, mix the mayonnaise with the tomato ketchup, celery salt, Worcester sauce and Tabasco sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
Whip the cream with ½ teaspoon vodka until thick.
Drain the vodka from the prawns. Mix the prawns through the cocktail sauce.
Arrange the chicory, avocado and prawns in layers. Top with a dollop of vodka cream and a wedge of lemon.
