This was a quick dinner I made myself last week and I could not have been more thrilled with it.  The textural intrigue provided by the shredded salad, combined with the peppery dressing is a fabulous accompaniment for the classic garlic-butter prawn combo.

Method

  1. Shred your vegetables using a cheese grater, squeeze out the excess moisture and combine in a bowl.  The ratios are up to you, of course.

  2. In a bowl combine the dressing ingredients.  Around 3 tbsp oil, 2 tbsp vinegar and half a teaspoon each of the spices was about right for me, but test and adjust to your liking.

  3. Melt 2 tbsp butter in a pan and gently cook a chopped garlic clove for a minute or two.  Add the prawns and some  chopped dill, and continue frying until cooked through.
