Among the dishes for Christmas Dinner was one big favourite, namely Prawn and Mango Salad.
(Firstly, do battle with the Christmas eve crowds spilling out of the doors of the Fish Market)
Ingredients for 6 people: 24 Cooked good sized king prawns peeled and deveined or any other prawns really.
2 ripe but firm mangoes peeled with flesh cut up in slivers
A cup thinly sliced Spanish or red onions or spring onions including green tops
Dressing: 3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons Thai Fish sauce
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 generous pinch of sugar
1 tablespoon chopped ginger, or grated
Chopped coriander - almost a bunch or so
1 teaspoon finely chopped chilli
Combine the dressing ingredients, virtually at the last moment pour the dressing over the mangos and prawns, toss lightly and serve garnished with sprigs of coriander.
