And it is hot.
Thank heavens for air conditioning.
Because cooking is the LAST thing I want to do at the end of a muggy day.
I made a DELICIOUS prawn dish the other night.
I will call it........
Coconut prawn salad.
Use whatever salad greens you like and lay them on a serving dish.
I used a mixture of rocket, spinach and mixed salad leaves.
Layer freshly steamed (but cold) asparagus over this.
You can also add spanish onions, finely chopped.
And baby tomatoes
And lebanese cucumbers.
Then, layer over your prawns....shelled, of course :)
Then, in a small saucepan, pour in I cup of coconut milk.
Get one tablespoon of rice flour and mix with a little of the milk.
Add this to the saucepan.
Heat gently until thickened, slightly. Like thickened cream
Add a tablespoon of fish sauce
A tablespoon of lime juice (or lemon juice)
A teaspoon of sugar.
And one or two finely chopped chillis.
I then pour this sauce into a plastic bottle with a nozzle.
Like a tomato sauce bottle.
When this sauce is cool, and just before serving, drizzle this sauce over your prawn salad.
This is also perfect with cooked chicken!!!
