Recipe adapted from Prawn Cocktail by Australian celebrity Chef Neil Perry. He says you'll want to eat cocktail sauce with everything, not just prawns. And prawns? They aren't simply huge shrimp. They have an extra pair of claws and are bigger overall, but in recipes prawns and shrimp can be used interchangeably with no affect in flavor.
