    Heston's prawn cocktail with roasted lettuce and lemon

    "Give the classic prawn cocktail a bit of barbecue magic. Letting the lemons and some of the lettuce leaves colour on the grill introduces a charred note that takes the dish in a new direction." Heston

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 3-4 minutes
    • Total time: 8-9 minutes 10 minutes

    Serves: 2


    4 Little Gem lettuces
    2 lemons
    180g tub Heston from Waitrose Prawn Cocktail
    4 cherry tomatoes, quartered


    1. Rinse the lettuces under cold running water. Remove the leaves, separating the outer leaves from the inner leaves.

    2. On a preheated barbecue, place the outer leaves to char on all sides then remove. Cut the lemons in half and place cut-side down on the barbecue until charred marks are visible.

    3. To serve, season the prawn cocktail with salt, freshly ground black pepper and a generous squeeze of the charred lemon juice. Cut the charred lettuce leaves into small strips. Place the charred leaves on the reserved inner lettuce leaves, spoon some of the prawn cocktail on top and finish with quartered tomatoes. Squeeze a little more of the charred lemon juice on top.
