If you’re a Skinnymixer, you know I don’t eat seafood… and I definitely do not eat prawns. For a really long time I also refused to cook seafood in my Thermomix because I felt like I could NEVER get it clean enough! Since I got a dishwasher (best.thing.ever!), I have been a little more relaxed with this rule. M has been pretty awesome over the past two weeks, having lost 8.3kg (you can read more here), so it was time he was rewarded with something yummy but super healthy/compliant. This is a great “base” recipe, which you can add different things to if you don’t have to be so restrictive like poor M does for now.
skinnymixer's Prawn Salad
- 200 g | 7 oz prawn meat (cleaned weight)
- tray of ice
- 200 g | 7 oz cucumber cubed
- handful of chopped fresh coriander
- juice of 1 lemon
- salt to taste
- 20 g | 0.7 oz olive oil omit for p2
- cubed avocado
- diced fresh tomato
- Weigh in 300 g or 10.6 oz water to mixer bowl, set for 8 min/steaming temperature/speed 2/MC on.
- Insert simmering basket and put your prawns inside, cook for 3 min/steaming temperature/speed 2/MC on.
- When the prawns are finished, immediately put them into cold water with the ice to cool, while you prepare your salad.
- Drain prawns well, cut your prawn meat into small chunks, stir through salad and you can either let it marinate in the fridge for a few hours or serve immediately.
