Spicy Prawn and Finger Lime Salad

Posted

With the weather quickly warming up this recipe is a necessity, best enjoyed outdoors on a balmy night or a sunlit day accompanied by friends and a chilled spritzer. Try cooking your fresh prawns on the BBQ to add a more rustic flavour, adjust the quantity of chilli to your spicy liking and simply swap prawns with tofu for a vegetarian option. It’s all about the Finger Lime dressing with this one, bursting in Vitamin E and a unique, zesty punch that’s sure to awaken your taste buds.

Serves 2

Ingredients

Prawns:

500g tiger prawns
2 cloves garlic, grated
1/2 tbs fresh chilli, finely sliced
2 tbs coriander leaves, chopped
1 1/2 tbs macadamia oil

pinch salt

Salad:

80g rocket leaves (or spinach)
1 red onion, sliced
1/4 cup raw cashews, crushed
1 Lebanese cucumber, sliced
1 carrot, julienned

2 tbs mint leaves

Dressing:

 

1 lime, juiced

1 tbs honey (or agave syrup)
2 tbs macadamia oil

salt & pepper, to taste

 

 

Directions

In a small bowl combine prawns, garlic, chilli, coriander, 1 tbs macadamia oil and salt until prawns are coated in flavours. Refrigerate until needed.

Toss together the onion, cashews, cucumber, carrot and mint, then divide between 2 serving bowls on a bed of rocket.

In a separate bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients and set aside for later.

Meanwhile, heat a griddle pan over high heat and cook the marinated prawns a couple of minutes on either side. Still warm, place on top of salad beds and drizzle with dressing.

Garnish with mint leaves and fresh chilli and enjoy crisp and fresh.
