I love Asian food so a lot of my salads have an Asian influence but there are also some pumped up classics too! Today’s salad includes 2 of my favourite things Mango and King Prawns!
Juicy prawns! Today I have used large tail on prawns because they are big and juicy and I like the way they look! I always have a bag of frozen prawns in my freezer for recipes like this! I buy mine from Costco or Wing Yip.
For the prawn marinade you will need, lime, coriander, garlic, cayenne pepper and olive oil.
What lettuce? I like to use a mix. Today I have used some red romaine, and leafy green lettuce.
Mango and cucumber chunks are a must for this recipe. Make sure your mango is ripe!
Honey Lime Vinegrette –
This dressing is super easy to make and you probably have everything in your pantry already! In a jar add:
2 tbsp olive oil;
1 tbsp honey;
juice of half a lime;
squeeze of siracha; and
salt and pepper!
The garlic and lime butter prawns and Honey and Lime dressing are what make this salad. Be sure to follow the recipe closely for an incredible combination of flavours!
