This retro classic is still popular with very good reason! You'll pan-fry juicy jumbo prawns and serve them over a crunchy gem & avocado salad covered in plenty of homemade Marie Rose sauce. Add crispy potatoes and finish it off with a sprinkling of hot cayenne! (Dairy-free, see our FAQs for details.)
