WHAT DOES SHRIMP COCKTAIL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

shrimp cocktail

Prawn cocktail

Prawn cocktail, also known as shrimp cocktail, is a seafood dish consisting of "shelled prawns in Marie Rose sauce, served in a glass". It was the most popular hors d'œuvre in Great Britain from the 1960s to the late 1980s, after which it became unfashionable before making a comeback in recent years. According to the English food writer Nigel Slater, the prawn cocktail "has spent most of see-sawing from the height of fashion to the laughably passé" and is now often served with a degree of irony.
