Prawn, Lime and Mango Salad

This is a delicious, filling salad from the book Taste by Sybil Kapoor. It's supposed to feed 4 as a light lunch but DH and I have had this between us for dinner. Try it - you will love it! BTW, the preparation time is a guesstimate. I can't remember how long it has taken me in the past.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a pan and fry the prawns quickly on both sides until pink; Add 2 tablespoons of lime juice, tip into a bowl and set aside.
  2. Whisk together 2 tbsp lime juice and 6 tbsp of olive oil; season with salt and pepper and fresh chillies; Mix half the dressing into the prawns.
  3. Peel each mango and cut its flesh away from the stone in four segments and finely slice each segment lengthways; Place in a bowl with the red onion and salad leaves.
  4. Halve, stone and peel the avocados, then slice them lengthways; Add the remaining dressing before mixing into the salad with the prawns.
  5. Garnish with the lime and serve immediately.

Wow, I should have reviewed a while ago. I've been making this for quite some time now. I don't use the red chilies and use papya rather than mango cause I just don't like mango. I've made with and without the salad. Its nice over brown rice. I've made this the night b4 I wanted to serve it (w/o salad greens) and poured it over the hot rice the next evening. I think it does well to let it sit for a little bit so the flavors can blend which makes it perfect for a picnic or to take for lunch. I even got an "I love you." from a friend when I served this to her lol. Thanks for a great and easy recipe.
