  1. To make the tomato sauce, pass the tomatoes through a fine Mouli sieve to remove the seeds and skin. Heat the extra virgin olive oil in a solid-based saucepan over a medium heat and add in the onion, garlic, basil, oregano and white pepper. Stir briskly to prevent the onion browning. When the onion is soft, add in the tomato pulp. Bring the mix to the boil and immediately reduce the heat to a low simmer. Remove the garlic and basil stems and throw away.
  2. Stir in the sugar and a little salt, then simmer for about 30 min till well reduced. Stir occasionally with a wooden spoon. Season the finished sauce with grnd black pepper and salt if liked.
  3. Mix the mayonnaise and tomato sauce together with the remaining cocktail sauce ingredients. Take eight wide bowls and arrange the larger lettuce leaves around the sides of each bowl. Fill with some shredded lettuce to create a base. Spoon on some of the creamy cocktail sauce and place 5 large prawns around the edge of each bowl. Hang some wedges of fresh lime on the sides of the bowl for squeezing.
