Spicy prawn salad
( SERVES 4 )
This week we are sharing our go-to dinner party dishes. Our spicy prawn and rocket salad is great because it is light but packed full of flavour. A fresh salad is always a great way to start a meal because it is quick to make and doesn’t leave you feeling too full before the next course. We particularly like this one as the prawns have a nice kick to them but the lemon segments and rocket balance this dish out well.
|2 cloves||Garlic, crushed|
|1 tsp||Ground black pepper|
|1 tsp||Onion powder|
|1 tsp||Cayenne pepper|
|1 tsp||Dried oregano|
|1 tsp||Dried thyme|
|1 tsp||Chilli flakes|
Salad & dressing
- For the prawns, combine all the spice mix and add the prawns to lightly coat with the seasoning mix.
- In a large pan, heat oil to medium-high. Add the prawns and fry for 2 minutes on each side until cooked through. Remove from pan and set aside.
- Arrange the salad leaves and lemon wedges on 4 plates.
- For the salad dressing, combine all ingredients in a jar. Seal tightly with lid and shake vigorously to emulsify. This dressing will last up to a week in the fridge. Add the prawns to the salad and drizzle over the dressing. Finish with the parmesan to serve.
