Fennel Salad with prawns and orange

6 comments Feb 24th, 2010 | By | 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

simple recipe


  • 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.

  1. Fennel and orange work great together and the shrimp look wonderful.

  2. I love coriander but it’s not easy to find. This would be great even for a main course.

  3. Just looking at that photo and the ingredients convinced me on the spot: I need to make it. Tomorrow!

  4. A heavely combination! that salad must taste so good!



  5. Tobias, it’s a gorgeous dish….a salad bordering on being a meal. Nicely done.

  6. Δείχνει υπέροχη η σαλάτα σου! Την λάτρεψα!
