THAI SALAD WITH PRAWNS AND LEMONGRASS RECIPE

For several reasons, this Thai Lemongrass Shrimp Salad has become one of my favorite dishes:
First and foremost, because its citrus fragrance pervades the ingredients in a wonderfully refreshing way. Every bite is bursting with flavor, from the herbal notes of lemongrass and mint to the dressing's tangy and tangy flavors.
Second, it is extremely simple to prepare; simply combine the dressing ingredients and cook the prawns.

Ingredients

  • 400 gr of prawns
  • 2 teaspoons of sea salt dissolved in 1 cup of water
  • 4 to 8 fresh red Thai chilies, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce (preferably Thai nam pla)
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons of sugar
  • 2 stalks fresh lemongrass
  • 2 small shallots, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced ​​(1/4 cup)
  • 2 chives (white parts and half green), thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, cut into pieces

Instructions

    1. To make our Thai shrimp and lemongrass salad, first cook the prawns in salted water until they turn color. We reserve until it is cool
    2. In a mortar, mash all of the chili peppers with the garlic until a thick paste forms, then add the fish sauce, lime juice, and sugar to taste. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.
    3. When the prawns are cool enough to handle, peel them, leaving the tail on, and devein them. We made a reservation.
    4. The lemongrass's tough outer leaves are discarded, and the root tips are removed. We cut them into very thin slices and set them aside.
    5. Combine the fish sauce, sugar, and lime juice in a mixing bowl. We will add the prawns, the chili mixture, the chopped lemongrass, shallots, chives, coriander, and mint to this dressing after it has completely dissolved.
    6. Serve with coriander or mint on a bed of lettuce and tomato.
