Spicy Prawn Salad ( Gung Yum Ta Kai )


I wondered whether the word 'spicy' in the name of this dish was redundant. Perhaps I should say 'non-spicy' for the few salads that aren't spicy!

Ingredients for 2 People
8 Prawns
200 ml Water
1 Tablespoon Chopped Lemon Grass
1 Tablespoon Chopped Chillies
1 Clove Garlic Chopped
1 Teaspoon Chopped Spring Onions
5 gms Mint Leaves
2 Tablespoons Fish Sauce
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1/4 Teaspoon Sugar

1. Boil the shrimp in water for 1 minute and set aside.
2. Make the spicy sauce by mixing the lemon grass, chilli, garlic, chopped spring onions, with the fish sauce, sugar, and lemon juice.
3. Layer the salad, with a bed of mint, a layer of shrimp and pour the sauce over the top.
