Prawn Yogurt Salad

Sometimes fresh prawns are simply irresistible whenever they are available at the nearby hypermarket I regular go to. Also, for the two of us, I can't really estimate how many prawns I should buy. So, I scooped two handfuls and back home, 3/4 used for the Nasi Lemak with Prawn Sambal. The balance can still remain for a while in the fridge but better to use up to retain the freshness. Within the same week, we had a small gathering at home and the timing seem perfect for this prawn salad with vegetables and yoghurt dressing.  

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

Blanch prawns with a little water and the ginger paste.
Drain of the water, cool down and slice prawns 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.
