It is a refreshing salad which has plain boiled rice as a base. You add fresh peeled shrimps (crevettes grises), sliced and lightly cooked mushrooms, and you finish with hot roasted almonds
Firstly, boil the rice until cooked, but not overcooked. It must remain crisp, and leave it aside until cold. For a quick result, pour some cold water over it.
Prepare the mushrooms : slice them very finely and cook them gently in a bit of melted butter. Add some lemon juice, salt and peper and cover with a lid. Do not overcook or burn the saucepan !
Peel the shrimps (use small prawns if you can't find fresh shrimps. They are not common in Australia.
When the rice is cold, add the cooked warm mushrooms, the shrimps and the finely chopped parsley - add the juice of one lemon, olive oil, salt and peper to taste and mix all ingredients together, gently.
Now and this is "the icing on the cake" , pour over the mixture the still hot grilled sliced almonds.
Mix well and correct the seasoning, if needed.
The combination of cold rice and hot ingredients is delicious !
Always use fresh mushrooms (field mushrooms or "champignons de Paris" only)
Do not put too much olive oil in the mixture as it would ruine the taste
Just toss all the ingredients gently, so that they don't turn into a mush.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
