Prawn Salad

Prawn Salad

Prawn salad is really delicious. A wonderful starter idea for a restaurant's Valentine's Day Menu. Prawns I would say is nowadays almost also a delicatessen. Here in South Africa, it is definitely not a cheap type of seafood anymore, but still such a lovely seafood. If you are in the price class and are able to afford to buy prawns, make this delicious Prawn salad recipe. For chefs at an upmarket restaurant, this is also a lovely idea to place on the menu. Prawns are really marvellous, if you don't eat prawns, I can tell you seriously miss out! Prawns are also a very good source of protein. And this is why you should consider eating it even more. You can make Thai prawn soup, prawns with pasta or noodles and even a prawn curry. With this prawn salad, you can enjoy this salad dressing that comes with it, or enjoy my Prawn Cocktail recipe, also visible on my blog underneath ‘Sauces and salsas’ This is again a very basic salad, add a few more ingredients and it will be turned into a lovely seafood prawn salad. In this prawn salad recipe, I once again prefer using Robertson’s Fish Spice, a lovely spice. As a tip: Be careful not to overpower the prawns with too much spice as it will overkill the prawns and also it will be too salty.
