Keto Avocado and Prawn Cocktails

These quick and easy low carb prawn cocktails make a great Keto Christmas starter or savory snack. Our Keto take on a classic prawn cocktail is prepared with juicy prawns, creamy mayonnaise, a little tomato paste, smoked paprika, a hint of mustard, lemon juice and diced avocado. The prawn mixture is served on a bed of crisp iceberg lettuce and topped with extra avocado and a sprinkling of fresh parsley. Perfect to serve before your Keto Christmas mains or as party food.

Recipe Adaptations

This easy Keto prawn cocktail serves as a great base recipe and can be easily adapted. We have seasoned our prawn cocktail sauce with smokey paprika, mustard, and a hint of garlic powder. For a basic Marie Rose sauce, you can just combine mayonnaise with tomato paste, lemon juice, and a little seasoning. Alternatively, you can add different variations on spices and seasonings as desired, such as cayenne pepper and lime juice. Please be sure to adjust your macros to account for any changes made to the recipe.

Serving Suggestions

We have prepared our Keto prawn cocktails in ramekins to provide individual serving size portions. These could also be served more classically in cocktail glasses. You could also use the prawn mixture as a salad topping or filling for low carb sandwiches.
