FINEST would not be my description
Bought as a treat, and was totally amazed. I have bought this product many times and been delighted with it. This time what a difference. To start with the prawns were certainly not large North Atlantic prawns, they were more like shrimps. The sauce which is usually lovely and creamy was just like the consistency of coloured water. Please contact your supplier because something was seriously wrong
very poor quality normal for Tesco Finest range
Going by Tesco recent quality of their food products, this is Tesco finest and very poor quality. Prawns were rubbery, sauce was very watery and had a strong taste of viniger
Tesco finest Prawn cocktail, divine!
I used these for our starter on christmas day, it was extremely fresh. I added a little double cream, cracked black pepper, lemon juice and just a drop of worcester sauce finally a teensy bit of sweet sherry, iceberg lettuce and filled the centre of a melon sauce, beautiful, prawns were generous in number and a wonderful size. It was delicious.
Just tried this product for the first time , very disappointing, bland watery sauce definitely not finest here !
Lazy stab at a classic: definitely not the Finest!
I'm a sucker for prawn cocktail, and the rave reviews swayed me. However, I found it expensive for what it is, and a very average product flying under the Finest banner again. The prawns - which should be the star here - are well-flavoured, but past their peak and not fresh enough (obvious even through the gloop of sauce), and their texture is a bit pappy and limp. The sauce was nice, but too rich - I added fresh lemon juice, a grind of black pepper and a little paprika to balance the richness. A good prawn cocktail always leaves me wanting just a little more, but I was happy to reach the end of this one. It was pleasant enough to eat I guess, but definitely not good enough to buy again. I'll stick with making my own.
fresh and very tasty.
fresh and very tasty.
Best I’ve found anywhere!
Love this! Definitely worth paying the extra pennies for this one, rather than the standard Tesco version. Lovely juicy prawns, and luxurious thick and flavourful sauce. Now where’s that avocado?!
divine marie rose sauce
gorgeous and has lots of marie rose sauce. I emptied it into a bowl and stirred through some king prawns! Delicious
my favourite lunch at the weekend.

Large, meaty, succulent prawns enrobed in a delicious Rose Marie sauce. Highly recommended.
