READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by JustJanS

This is called a salad, and it's good, but it's more like a stir-fry served over greens. I'm posting it for Daydream who is looking for prawn and salad type appetisers for Christmas.

I used a bed of fresh baby spinach (pre-washed, from a bag) instead of watercress - delicious!
