This is a budget version of prawn cocktail for some delicious party food, using crab sticks as an alternative to prawns. The sauce can be made up to 2 days ahead. Cover and chill until needed.

 250g seafood sticks or 250g packed large peeled prawns, roughly chopped
 3 tbsp mayonnaise
 1 tbsp tomato ketchup
 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
 1 tsp horseradish sauce (optional)
 3 baby little gem lettuces
 1 tbsp chopped chives

Whisk together the mayonnaise, sauces and horseradish sauce (if using) in a small bowl. Add the chopped seafood sticks.


Trim the ends from the lettuces; separate the leaves and arrange on a serving plate (use only the smaller leaves from the heart of the lettuce), keep the remaining leaves in a bag in the fridge to eat in a salad.


Top each small leaf with a teaspoon of seafood mixture. Sprinkle with the chives arrange on a serving plate and serve immediately.
