Backstory

This dish was inspired by the cat in the window of the angling shop, my love for roasted peanuts and the fact that I was on my way to buy Thai fish sauce. The outcome was a quick and easy salad.

Ingredients

  • 500 grams big prawns
  • salt
  • 1 red bell pepper, in small cubes
  • 2 tablespoons chives, chopped or chopped spring onions
  • 2 tablespoons roasted peanuts
  • For the dressing
  • 2 tablespoon Thai fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon either sweet chilisauce or hot chilisauce [I like it hot]
  • 2 cloves of garlic, squeezed
  • 2 Spanish red or green peppers, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of basil, chopped

Directions

  • 1 Roast the peanuts in a skillet with a bit of oil until golden, drain and sprinkle with salt
  • 2 Mix the ingredients for the dressing
  • 3 Boil the prawns for a very short time in slightly salted water
  • 4 Cool them off in ice water and drain well
  • 5 Mix the prawns with the dressing and put them on a plate
  • 6 Decorate with the bell pepper cubes and peanuts and sprinkle the chives or onions over it.
