Fennel Salad with prawns and orange6 comments Feb 24th, 2010 | By Tobias | Category: Recipes, Salads and Dressings
A simple fruity salad that gives a hint of summer. I like salads that are a bit different. This one certainly is. Fennel, prawns, orange, lime and coriander make a colourful and exotic mix. The prawns make the salad almost a main course, at least for lunch.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
cooking time: 3 minutes
- 10 prawns
- 1 Fennel bulb
- 2 oranges
- 1 Lime
- Coriander or Dill
- Olive oil
- salt and pepper
Wash the fennel bulb and cut it into fine stripes. Peel the oranges and the line with a sharp knife. Cut off all the peel including the white layer surrounding the pulp. Cut the fillets out of the fruits avoiding the skin separating the pieces.
Blend the filets with the fennel. Add salt and pepper and olive oil. Let it rest and marinate a bit.
Peel the prawns, remove the intestine with a small knife and fry them in a pan with some olive oil. Salt and pepper them. frying for a few minutes should be enough.
Add the prawns with the salad, pour the fryin oil over the salad and mix well. Add finely chopped coriander or dill.
