Prawn and Mango salad

Thrown together today in about three minutes, with almost zero mental function left after a challenging day at work:

Thai prawn and mango salad

Ingredients: mango, cooked prawns, snow peas, garlic, chilli, ginger, coriander, sesame oil, fish sauce, lime, lemon.

Method: peel & devein prawns, toss together with snow peas. Slice mango and arrange over the top. In a mortar and pestle, grind together garlic, ginger, coriander and add sesame oil, fish sauce, and fresh lemon and lime juice together, tasting as you go to get the right flavour. Chop chilli and add to mix. Drizzle over the salad.

The verdict: Not bad, I think next time I'll marinade the prawns in half of the mixture and grill them first.
