This dish is always a hit with our guests both as an appetizer or as the entree. It's mild so if you want to spice it up, go for it. I like to use honeydew but by all means use your favorite. This salsa is also great on salmon. The recipe is easily increased; just multiply the ingredients by the number of pounds of prawns you want to serve.
