Recipe by OzzieBabe

This is a lovely fragrant salad, perfect for those laid back summer lunches with a lovely glass of crisp chardonnay. The original recipe was featured on a fishing TV show here in Australia called "Creek to Coast". If you are not able to source fresh kaffir lime leaves you can substitute it with the zest of 1/2 a small fresh lime, also if you can not source fresh Vietnamese mint regular mint can be used just as successfully.
