but how do u cook the prawns?!!! You can tell when prawns and shrimp are cooked, as they will turn a pink colour. As a guide, small - medium sized shrimp will take 3 - 4 minutes, large shrimp will take 5 - 8 minutes and jumbo shrimp or prawn will need 7 - 8 minutes cooking time. o boil 1 lb of prawns or shrimp carry out the following steps: Fill a saucepan with 2 litres of water and add 2 tablespoons of sea salt, bring to the boil, then add the prawns. Reduce the heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes, depending on size.The prawns or shrimp will be cooked when they float to the top and the flesh has turned white or opaque throughout. Cut one in half to check. Strain the prawns, run under a tap for a few second to stop the cooking. You can eat the prawns immediately or cool for our Prawn Cocktail. The Cookit Team

you dont cook the prawns!!!! Uncooked prawns are grey in colour, we used cold, cooked prawns which look pink. The images make this clear but you are right the ingredients don't. We have altered the recipe to be clear. Thanks. The Cookit Team

Marie Rose sauce was made with mayo' plus thick cream, (now one uses Greek yogurt). Try this, cook off a few scallops, (cook off the corals on thier own), quarter the scallops, half the corals, add all to the Marie Rose sauce, add chilli flakes if so desired, serve as above.

Marie Rose Sauce has no cream in it, whatsoever. A true Marie Rose Sauce is made with a good Mayonnaise, Ketchup, Lemon juice, Tabasco (just a touch, as it is not an American Cocktail Sauce), and a little Cognac. Season to taste. Despite it's French-sounding name, it is an English sauce. Our recipe, as part of the History Cookbook, was taken from a 1960's cookbook. We do not promise that it is the nicest or even a true Marie Rose Sauce but it is the recipe mass produced in family cookbooks of the era. We would be delighted to have your recipe added to the site if you would like to contribute it. The Cookit Team
