Preparation time: few minutes
This delightfully rich and creamy sauce is a true classic, a simple way to bring seafood dishes to life, either as a dip or sauce.
'Marie Rose' is a misspelling which first started to appear in the 1990's with the fad for 'French-ifying' food names. The origin is British. A Royal Navy (UK) chef providing catering to the dive on the wreck of the Mary Rose in 1981 in Portsmouth Harbour (Hampshire, UK) was left without a sauce to accompany prawns - he mixed some ingredients he had to hand (originally tomato ketchup, mayonnaise, Worcester sauce and salt) and the sauce was named after the wreck being dived - Mary Rose.
Can be stored in the fridge in a screw-top jar, for up to a week.
- Whisk together all ingredients.
