Retro Firecracker Prawn Cocktail Shots! (Shrimp Cocktail Shots)

The French LOVE serving "Amuse Gueule" (appetisers) in shot glasses! So, I thought I would concoct a special recipe to accompany our pre-dinner aperitifs this New Year! A retro 1960's starter that I believe still has a place when served for special meals and parties, and this is so simple; it's also a great idea for a large gathering, as the glasses are small enough to nibble from whilst you sip your drinks! I used Mache (Lamb's Lettuce) in these prawn cocktail shots in the photos - but a selection of any seasonal salad leaves would be fine. The Firecracker comes from the addition of tabasco, pink peppercorns and cayenne pepper in the seafood sauce - adjust the quantities to suit your own taste - we like it piquant! Salut!
