Marie Rose

Once you have created some superb homemade mayonnaise (see our mayonnaise recipe) why not use this as a base for Marie Rose sauce. This is great served with fat juicy prawns, or as a dip served with crispy battered fish goujons. Fanny Cradock gave it it's now common name of Cocktail Sauce and worked wonders for the popularity of the great British prawn cocktail back in the 60s and 70s.
