Clementine Marinated Prawn Cocktail:

A Clementine Marinated Prawn Cocktail’s delicious flavours will raise your seafood experience.

This recipe creates a dish that is both light and rich by combining the bright, citrusy tones of fresh clementines with the succulence of large, succulent prawns.

In order to make this delicious dish, marinade the prawns in a zesty mixture of minced garlic, clementine juice, a touch of LoSalt and a little black pepper.

This will allow the flavours to combine and infuse the shellfish with a delightful citrus flavour.

After marinating, the prawns are expertly grilled, bringing out their inherent sweetness and giving the meal a hint of smokiness.

Next, the prawns are placed on top of a bed of crisp lettuce, which forms a colourful base for the cocktail.

The finishing touch is a drizzle of the remaining clementine marinade, offering a tantalising contrast to the savoury prawns.

This Clementine Marinated Prawn Cocktail is a symphony of flavours that will delight your taste buds and impress your guests, making it a perfect choice for any special occasion or a delightful weekend treat or party food ideas.

Clementine Marinated Prawn Cocktail Wine Options:

Clementine Marinated Prawn Cocktail Wine Options.

Choosing the best wine to pair with a Clementine Marinated Prawn Cocktail depends on personal preferences, but here are some wine options that can complement the flavours:

Sauvignon Blanc: This crisp and refreshing white wine often has citrus and herbal notes, which can complement the citrusy and zesty flavours of the clementine marinated prawns.

Pinot Grigio: Another white wine option, Pinot Grigio, is known for its light and crisp profile. It can enhance the overall freshness of the prawn cocktail.

Chardonnay: If you prefer a fuller-bodied white wine, a lightly oaked Chardonnay with balanced acidity can work well. Look for one that doesn’t overpower the delicate flavours of the prawns.

Prosecco or Champagne.

The effervescence of sparkling wines like Prosecco or Champagne can provide a lively contrast to the prawn cocktail, making it a great choice for a celebratory or festive occasion.


A dry rosé can be a versatile choice, offering a balance between the lightness of white wine and the structure of red. It can complement the seafood without overpowering it.
