Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 small red chilli , seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp light muscovado sugar
  • 3 shallots , finely sliced
  • 85g roasted salted peanuts , finely chopped
  • 2 green mangoes or 3 Granny Smith apples
  • 2 tbsp chopped mint
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 200g pack raw shell-on headless prawn , peeled but with tail on (or, if you use ready peeled prawns, you need 175g/6oz)
  • 2 little gem lettuces
  • 2 spring onions , shredded

Method

  • STEP 1

    Mix together the lime juice, chilli, fish sauce and sugar in a large bowl. Add the shallots and three quarters of the peanuts and mix well. Cover and set aside for up to 4 hours.

  • STEP 2

    Peel and coarsely grate the mango or apple, and stir into the mixture along with the mint. Heat the oil in a frying pan or wok, add the prawns and stir fry quickly until evenly pink – about 2 minutes.

  • STEP 3

    Scatter the lettuce leaves on a serving plate and spoon the salad mixture in the centre. Surround with the prawns and scatter over the remaining peanuts and spring onions.
