Christmas Prawn Cocktail- Asian inspired

imageAs promised from my instagram site- eatyourwayfabulous

Prawn Cocktail is my absolute favourite Christmas dinner starter. I know it’s also an old favorite of many. This year, however I plan to give my Prawn Cocktail an Asain twist with this recipe from Shelina Permalloo, former Masterchef UK winner.

Ingredients:
80g Chinese cabbage, finely shredded
80g green beans, top and tailed
80g cherry tomatoes, quartered
200g smoked salmon cut into 4 pieces
12 cooked tiger prawns
50g crushed cashew nuts
FOR THE DRESSING
A large handful of Thai basil, torn
A large handful of coriander, chopped (retain a few whole leaves for the garnish)
2 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp fish sauce
Juice of 1 lime
Pinch of hot chilli powder
1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce

Method:
1.To make the dressing, place all the ingredients into a small bowl and mix until thoroughly combined.
2.In a large bowl, mix together the cabbage, beans and tomatoes and then add two- thirds of the dressing and mix thoroughly. Divide this into 4 serving glasses
3.Carefully mix the remaining dressing into the cooked prawns and top each glass with three prawns. Roll a piece of smoked salmon on top and serve with some coriander leaves and cashew nuts to garnish.

*My son’s allergic to cashews and pistachios (they’re from the same family) so I’ll omit the cashews and perhaps try walnuts instead ☺️.
