I like the sound of the recipe, but am annoyingly allergic to shellfish. Do you think it'd work with salmon or some other alternative?

I made this a few weeks ago for a dinner party (I also used red wine vinegar instead of rice vinegar). This course totally stole the show!! I actually served it as a starter. Everyone loved it! It tasted very fresh & healthy and was full of bold, fun flavours. Will definitely be making it again.

Made this with a few of my own alterations. I marinated the prawns in chilli and garlic first then just pan fried and then mixed in with the salad ingredients (used watercress instead of spinach and red wine vinegar instead of rice vinegar) Was really tasty and so healthy. Nice quick midweek meal, great for throwing together when im home from the gym!
