Mango, Prawn and Avocado Noodle Salad with Satay Dressing

This salad tastes like summer on a plate. The smell of the ripe mangoes with the tangy peanut dressing is actually intoxicating. Mango, chili, avocado and prawn is such a great refreshing and summery combination, the sweetness of the mango balances the nutty soy laced dressing and compliments the prawns perfectly. Get ready to fall in love with your dinner…

PRAWNS AND CHICKPEAS WITH PAPRIKA AND SAFFRON

PRAWN GADO GADO SALAD

I don’t know if this is something you’ve picked up on but I’m pretty into a peanut dressing at the moment. There was the coconut poached chicken salad, the tofu schnitzel strips and the satay Tofu. Is it getting repetitive? I hope not because this is another good one! This salad is both refreshing and filling and I’m not going to claim it’s traditional. Let’s call it my take on a Gado Gado salad instead.

PRAWN PASTA WITH CHILLI AND BLISTERED CHERRY TOMATOES

       This is date night pasta. Whether that date is with yourself, a mate or your significant other. The kind of dish that’s impressive but very little effort so you’ll look like a whizz without getting yourself in a state. If tomatoes are in season it is beautiful with roasted Roma tomatoes stirred through, if not then just use a good quality passata. Or alternatively cherry tomatoes, halved and thrown in a pan with a little smashed garlic, chilli, oil and parsley and cooked until blistered is also great (I also make them a bit saucier (in all meanings of the word) by adding a little reserved cooking water from the pasta to loosen the tomatoes into a sauce when I do this.

BURMESE STYLE NOODLES WITH MUSHROOM CURRY SAUCE

Burmese style curry noodles with mushrooms 3

The Burmese style curry noodles are so versatile and full of flavour. They’re a take on a dish that usually involves noodles with a meat sauce and your favourite toppings. So sort of like a Burmese version of spag bol! Sort of haha. This version involves a mushroom rather than meat based sauces but I’ve included instructions for a variation using chicken and one using prawns because variety is the spice of life and all that jazz (also I couldn’t choose just one version).
