Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Cut each prawn in half lengthways, removing the vein that runs down the back. Using a vegetable peeler, strip the cucumber of all its skin and discard, then continue to peel away long strips of the cucumber flesh until you reach the seeds. Chop the coriander and mix with the cucumber strips and prawns.

  • STEP 2

    Make the dressing in a pestle and mortar by pounding together the chilli and sugar into a paste. Add the fish sauce and lime juice to the paste, and stir well. Pour over the salad just before serving, with the nuts sprinkled on top.
