A fresh, colourful and vibrant salad that can be served as individual entrees, sides or as a centre of table salad.
Method (Serves 4)
Finely chop ½ the coriander leaves and place in a ceramic dish with the oil, garlic, lemongrass and chillies. Add prawns and stir to combine all the flavours. Cover and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes (or up to an hour if time permits).
Meanwhile, using a vegetable peeler, peel long thin strips from cucumbers. Combine cucumber, avocado, lettuce, remaining coriander leaves and lime juice and sesame oil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
Preheat your Russell Hobbs grill on medium-high heat for at least 5 minutes. BBQ prawns for 2 minutes on each side until pink and starting to char. Transfer to a plate and turn the grill off.
Pile the salad onto a serving platter and arrange prawns on the top with a sprinkling of sliced pickled ginger, spring onion and a few drops of sesame oil.
