Prawn, Avocado, Apple Coconut Salad

I have thought about changing the name of this blog to Salads Incorporated or maybe Salads etc?

I love salads! They are probably the meal I eat the most. I love the creativity and flavours. They are relatively fast to make and healthy.

This is one I whipped up the other night. Super fresh and zesty.

1 head sui choy cabbage, finely diced
1 granny smith apple, julienned
1 avocado, thinly sliced
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon fish sauce
1/8 teaspoon green curry paste
2 cloves garlic, grated

Juice from 2 limes (around 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 1/2 teaspoon honey
Zest from 1 lime
Salt and pepper to taste

20 prawns

Servings: 4

Combine cilantro, coconut milk, fish sauce, green curry paste in a bowl and let marinate with prawns in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Combine dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.
Combine cabbage, apple, avocado and red onion in a large bowl and toss with dressing.
Preheat broiler and place prawns and coconut sauce in oven for approximately 5 minutes or just until they turn pink.
Plate salad onto 4 plates and top with coconut prawns.
