This would obviously be great with noodles instead but using these finely shredded vegetables makes it way more healthy.
Prawn Salad with Asian Style Pesto - Serves 1
Julienned vegetables (or spiralised if you've had a fancy new toy for Christmas!) I used carrots, cucumber and red pepper.
100g, approx 4oz Cooked large prawns
For the "pesto" dressing
1 tsp Grated ginger
1/2 tsp Grated garlic
1/2 Red chilli, finely chopped
Juice 1/2 lime
2 tbsp of unsalted peanuts (or rinse off the salt)
A handful of coriander (cilantro)
1 tbsp Fish sauce
1 tsp Sesame oil
1/2 tsp Sugar
Julienne the vegetables and put on the plates with the prawns.
Make the dressing by chopping the peanuts and coriander and mix with grated ginger and garlic and with the remaining ingredients.
Assemble the dish with the dressing.
