A blast from the past-'80's prawn cocktail #mysundayphoto

prawn cocktail shot glasses

I went to a party yesterday with an 80's theme. I was very glad of the opportunity to wear my fave comfy dungarees - one trend which has come back around which I have succumbed to despite my general rule that if I wore it the first time round I probably shouldn't wear it now.

My friend throwing the party asked what I thought was typical 1980s food and prawn cocktail was high on my list. I made this batch for her - a mini version in neon shot glasses with a small amount of mixed leaves, and prawns tossed in a sauce made the way we used to with mayo, ketchup, lemon juice and paprika.

What food do you remember from the '80's? ( if you were born then that is!)



  1. Oh yes, I always chose prawn cocktail for a starter, followed by scampi and chips in a basket. Am I showing my age now? I only wore dungarees when I was pregnant though.

  2. I love a prawn cocktail, so yummy
