This salad is particularly pretty as well as good to cat and, being Thai in origin, is completely oil free and low kilojoules.
Drop 600 g raw prawns into boiling water for about 3 minutes or just until they turn pink. Set the saucepan aside and keep the prawns cool in the liquid.
Peel a cucumber about 350 g in weight and slice it thinly. Shell the prawns and halve them lengthwise. Arrange, prawns and cucumber decoratively in a serving dish. Make a dressing by combining 3 finely chopped shallots, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 tablespoon fish sauce and one small chilli, chopped finely.
Spoon the dressing over the salad and scatter over the top 2 tablespoons chopped parsley.
Leave flavours to combine for half an hour before serving.
Makes 4 servings.
