Cocktail Sauce

Bowl Of Cocktail Sauce

Cocktail Sauce

I last made this at Christmas to go with prawns, it was tasty and a beautiful accompaniment to the prawns. I have posted a whole egg mayonnaise recipe which is what I used to go into this sauce. If I didn’t have to make the mayonnaise before I made this, it would have been more quicker and easier to make. Doesn’t matter though, it was well worth the end product, this is the best cocktail sauce that I have made.

Ingredients

1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup thickened cream
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce

Method

Combine all of the ingredients by hand with a spoon
Pop into a serving dish and refrigerate until cold

Hints

You can make a serving platter of prawns on a bed of salad with cocktail sauce on the side
Arrange some salad and the prawns in small serving dishes and top with cocktail sauce as an entree
Mix the cocktail sauce with a small can of tuna chunks or flakes and then spread onto bread for a tasty sandwich
Have as a side with salmon or tuna, balls or patties

Whole Egg Mayonnaise

I got this whole egg mayonnaise recipe off a website before Christmas because I wanted a real mayo to add to the Cocktail Sauce that I was making. I didn’t think that the condensed milk mayonnaise would go as well with the cocktail sauce, so I made this one, it didn’t take long and turned out fine. I just wish I could remember where I got it from so I could give credit, if I do end up finding the site I will add it here. I used a processor for this one as the oil needs to be added very slowly. I used a trick that I found on the same website, I put a hole into the bottom of a small plastic takeaway cup and squashed it into the feeding chute of the processor. I then poured the oil which was pre-measured into the cup whilst the processor was going. The oil streamed out of the bottom of the cup into the mixture. This worked a treat and like I said it turned out just fine.

Ingredients

1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs (room temperature)
2 cups vegetable oil
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar

Method

In a food processor add the eggs, mustard powder and salt
Blend until mixed
Pop a small takeaway cup in the feeding chute of the processor and pour the oil in whilst the processor is on medium
Pour in the vinegar then stop the processor when it is combined

Hints

Use a food processor with a large capacity jug as the 2 cups of oil are equal to 500ml and the volume will increase
Add lemon juice and or extra mustard powder to taste
You can do this recipe without a processor, just whisk the eggs first then keep whisking whilst adding streams of oil slowly
This recipe can also be done in a blender as well

Mayonnaise

If you look around on the internet for mayonnaise recipes, you will be sure to find many. There are whole egg, yolk and condensed milk versions. This is a condensed milk version, it only consists of 4 ingredients so it’s easy to make. If you always keep a can of condensed milk and the basic ingredients in the cupboard you can whip up this mayonnaise in 5 minutes.

Ingredients

1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup of brown vinegar
1/4 tsp on salt
1 tsp mustard powder

Method

Stir to combine

Hints

Experiment by varying the amounts of vinegar and mustard powder
Try adding sweet chili sauce to the mayo
Keep the mayonnaise covered in the refrigerator for about 3 days (can be kept longer, just check it first)
