This is one of the simplest seafood salads you will ever make — the combination of lime and chilli is so fresh it will soon be a favourite. It’s easy to substitute any seafood you like for the prawns.


  • 500 g (1 lb 2 oz) cooked king prawns (shrimp), peeled and deveined with tails left in


Whisk together the lime juice, fish sauce and sugar. Toss the prawns, chillies, lemongrass, shallots, mint, coriander and lime leaves with the dressing, taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary. Serve immediately.
