Prawn Yogurt Salad


Not always available, but whenever I get my hands on fresh prawns at the nearby hypermarket, I end up buying more. Also, rather difficult to estimate the exact amount needed for a small family like ours. whatever, usually after making a prawn dish (Nasi Lemak with Prawn Sambal), the balance is stored in the fridge. So happened within the same weekwe had a small gathering at home and the timing seemed perfect for this prawn salad with vegetables and yogurt dressing.  

Ingredients
10-15 medium size prawns – remove skin and de-vein
1 tsp ginger paste
½ red capsicum – cubed
½ zucchini – cubed
3-4 cabbage leaves – shredded
1 stalk spring onion - shredded 
Salad leaves

For the sauce
2 tbsp yogurt
A splash of Tabasco sauce
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt for taste

Method
Quickly blanch prawns in simmering water with ginger paste. 
Drain of the water, cool down prawns and slice into two pieces. 
Combine all ingredients for the sauce and whisk until smooth.
Add prawns, capsicum, zucchini, cabbage, spring onion and salt. 
Toss together and serve in a bowl lined with salad leaves.

  1. Now here's a prawn recipe I can actually go for! My husband loves them but I'm kind of 'meh' and since I'm the cook, that means he never gets them ;) This could be a good way for me to bring them to my table!
