  • Salad
  • Nahm jim
  • What to do

  • 1. To make the nahm jim, stir fish sauce, brown sugar and lime juice together until sugar dissolves. Stir through garlic, chilli and coriander.

  • 2. Pour half of the nahm jim onto the prawns and stir to briefly marinate the prawns. Reserve remaining nahm jim for serving.

  • 3. Combine cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, mango, shallot, mint and coriander in a large bowl.

  • 4. Heat the oil in a frying pan over high heat. Add the prawns, and cook for 30–60 seconds each side or until golden brown and just cooked through.

  • Divide salad between serving plates and top with prawns. Spoon remaining nahm jim over the top

  • Tip: Add more vegetables to your dishes by experimenting with different textures. For example, try grating,slicing, dicing or mashing. Adding veggies helps to boost fibre, lower kilojoules, and adds colour, flavour and phytonutrients to your dish.
