Prawn cocktail with macadamia sauce
This dairy free version of a classic cocktail sauce will take you back to Christmas Day in 1970! Macadamias thicken the sauce and impart a creamy flavour that works perfectly with the tang of lime and the bite of a little extra Tabasco. A modern take on a retro favourite.
