Prawn and Mango Salad - Mango Week # 3




Mike's sis's in laws gave us a packet of frozen prawns, that were supposed to be very fresh because they always get their seafood supplies from the coastal areas.

I didn't want to cook it in a complicated way and so I made it into a salad that I once tasted at Monte's in BSC. It's simple and nice and perfect for entertaining. The version I had was served with Thousand Island sauce, but, I didn't have that at home, so I made my own. If you have tomato paste, it's even better!

As many prawns as you like
As much mango as you like

1. Bring a pot of water to boil. Season it with some salt and sugar. Put prawns in and boil until it curls and looks pink.
2. Drain prawns and dunk them immediately into iced water.
3. Peel prawns and set them aside (chill if possible)
4. Prepare your serving dishes. Place some lettuce on the bottom.
5. Peel and cut mangoes into whichever way you fancy. Place them over the lettuce.

  16. Hi there, best of luck! No matter you will get through or not,you have shared so many good recipes with us!

    I'm a big fan of Masterchef Australia and I tell you Malaysians were doing very well in this Australia's version! In Season 1, Poh, the lady who migrated from KL made her way to 1st runner up & becomes more famous than the winner.She has her own tv show and has released a cookbook. In Season 2, even better, Adam, the Malaysian born guy took the Masterchef's title away + another Malaysian guy, Alvin placed in top 10.And in the latest Season(3), Billy boy from Ipoh made the 6th place! I just can't wait to see Masterchef Malaysia to release the dvd later!
