Serves - 4


Bring a large pan of water to the boil and add a squeeze of lemon and drop of vinegar.

Add the whole shrimp and cook until they rise to the surface. Drain and chill in ice-cold water.

Peel the cooled shrimp, leaving one shrimp whole per serving (for the garnish).

Cut the little Little Gem lettuce in half and place in ice-cold water to crisp it up.

For the sauce, mix all the sauce ingredients together.

To assemble the cocktails, drain the lettuce and pat dry with kitchen paper.

Arrange two-thirds of the leaves in glasses or small bowls.

Shred the remaining leaves and add to a mixing bowl. Add the peeled shrimp and spoonful of sauce.

Top with the unpeeled shrimp and a sprinkling of cayenne pepper.
