Avocado prawn mango salad served

The other day I bought this mango vinegar, it says in the back that it is suitable for avocado shrimps salad or as a marinate for duck breast but there are no recipes in their website so I improvised and made my own mango vinaigrette with a bit of imagination and the result was very successful. We all like it very much and worth to make a note here so I can make again. We had heat wave last week and this tangy salad was very suitable to combat the heat.

Make 2 big plates for 3-4 ppl as main course

Salad dressing:

  • 1/3 cup mango vinegar (as seen in photo)
  • 3 tbsp runny honey
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • a drizzle soy sauce (very little)
  • 1/2 tbsp mirin
  • 1 tsp fleur de sel
  • fresh ground pepper

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 packs Baby salad green, washed and drained
  • 2 Thai Mangoes, flesh cut into small pieces
  • 800g fresh prawns, cooked, shells removed and deveined
  • 1 avocado, cut into cubes, drizzle with lime juice to prevent oxidation
  • Toppings: sesame seeds, fried onion, chives (you can use some mint too)

(I used the shells and made a prawn broth by cooking with water, leek columns, onions, spring onion, 10 white peppercorns and 2 bay leaves. I filtered and used it to make a mixed vegetable and prawns and fish bulgar the following day)

 

Directions:

  1. Prepare the salad dressing by mixing all ingredients as above and set aside.
  2. Divide the washed salad leaves into 2 big salad serving bowls.
  3. Spread on top the shrimps and other ingredients on top on both bowls.
  4. Drizzle the salad dressing on top and serve immediately.

Bon appétit!
