How To Make Avocado, Prawn and Cabbage Salad:

(Serves 6)

  • 6 fat garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 350g (12oz) raw shelled prawns
  • 25g (1oz) roasted cashew nuts, finely chopped
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 125g (4oz) white cabbage or Chinese cabbage, finely shredded
  • 1 small green mango, peeled, stoned and shredded
  • 1 small handful of fresh mint and coriander leaves, roughly chopped
  • 6 spring onions, shredded 
For The Dressing:
  • ½ red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 generous tbsp. Bonne Maman Apricot Conserve
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil.

Avocado, Prawn and Cabbage Salad

  1. Put all the dressing ingredients in a jar and shake together.
  2. Fry the garlic in the oil in a heavy-based saucepan over a medium heat until golden and crispy. Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  3. In the same oil, stir-fry the prawns with the roasted cashew nuts for about 2-3 minutes until the prawns are just pink. Add to the garlic, spoon over 2 tablespoons of the dressing and set aside to cool.
  4. When ready to serve, peel, stone and dice the avocado and toss together with the cabbage, mango, herbs, spring onions and prawn mixture. Serve immediately, handing round the remaining dressing in a separate bowl.
Cooks Tips:

- Make the dressing up to 1 week ahead and keep in a jar in the fridge. Cook the prawn mixture the day before needed. Keep chilled and toss everything together just before serving.

- This dressing is also delicious spooned over pan-fried chicken fillets and served with basmati rice.
