Dressing

  • Place all ingredients in a jar and shake vigorously to emulsify. Adjust honey and seasoning to taste.  This dressing makes quite a lot so only put on as much as you need. The left dressing will last for 4-5 days in the fridge.

Salad

  • Place rocket, spinach, mango and avocado on a large plate. Add prawns to salad plate whilst still warm.
  • To serve sprinkle over chopped chili, parsley, sesame seeds and drizzle over the dressing.

I hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do!
