There's just something about Marie Rose Sauce that boosts seafood to another level.

Prawn cocktail with Marie Rose sauce

This iconic dipping sauce is not just for prawns; it's also a great companion for salmon, as a rustic breaded haddock, a po boy or even with homemade salmon fishcake.

Could it be the sharpness of lemon and tomato, or perhaps the gentle kick from the Worcestershire sauce that makes it so appealing?


Marie Rose Sauce is a much-loved British accompaniment crafted from a blend of mayonnaise and tomato ketchup. This Marie Rose Sauce is similar to the base for American Thousand Island dressing, albeit minus the pickle relish, and is also related to the spicier Russian dressing.

The origin of the name is murky, potentially linked to the British warship Mary Rose. Yet, its most famous application is the quintessential prawn cocktail sauce, popularised by Fanny Cradock, a well-known television chef of the 1960s.
