Prawns are definitely on top of my seafood list. They are sweet, juicy and versatile. They can be steamed, stir-fried, boiled, grilled and even added to soups or vegetables. Apart from these, they are also perfect for salads and they make delectable appetizers.
Prawn cocktails are perfect starters for parties and dinners because they are easy to prepare. In fact, it is a good idea to prepare the cocktail sauce a day before, so that you can chill it. Adjust the dressing according to your taste. Chopped celery is also an interesting addition to this recipe, making it crunchier and more delicious.
