    Chrissyo's Note:

    This is a Nigella Lawson recipe from her summer collection. However, I had to share it with you. It is really a wonderfully tasty dish especially for those hot summer days. Here is Australia this recipe is a regular on our Christmas Day menu. The colours in the dish are stunning. Preparation time includes peeling the green (raw) prawns/shrimp and the cooling time for the prawns and the cooked black rice.

      Chrissy this is excellent. Love the flavour of the dressing. Like Latchy I also used cooked prawns and didn't have black rice so used wild rice instead. Very quick and easy to put together for a great looking, and tasty dish. A recipe that I will use often. Thanks Chrissy!

      Just loved the dressing for this, which in a way really is the recipe. The black rice that chrissy sent me took about 50 mins to cook, but is worth it, really is pretty seeing the black rice and the lovely red prawns together. I actually just bought prawns that had already been cooked, they looked good and I was lazy. Thanks chrissy for a great recipe.
