This is a good way to have prawns on your menu when entertaining that looks great and helps stop over indulging spoon per person!


  • Medium cooked prawns - number as required

  • OPTION 1 (Prawn Cocktail)

  • Iceburg lettuce

  • Thousand Island Dressing

  • OPTION 2 (Asian Prawn Cocktail)

  • Chinese Cabbage (Wombok)

  • Fried Noodles (Changs)

  • Chopped Peanuts or Cashews

  • Sweet and Sour Sauce


  • 1.

    Peel prawns leaving the tail.

  • 2.

    De-vein and butterfly slightly.

  • 3.

    Finely shred lettuce or cabbage.

  • 4.

    For Option 1, place some lettuce on spoon, top with prawn and some dressing.

  • 5.

    For Option 2, combine cabbage with noodles and nuts and place on spoon.

  • 6.

Asian spoons can usually be found easily in Asian Food Stores - and generally very cheap, I paid only $1 each
