Summer Prawn and Tuna Salad

When I think of summer, I think of Christmas, and when I think of Christmas, I think seafood.

Ingredients

  • 16 fresh cooked prawns I like the king prawns from Mooloolaba)

  • 2 tuna steaks, around 120gms each

  • 100g (16) snow peas, trimmed, cut into fine strips

  • 1 medium red capsicum, cut into fine strips

  • 1 carrot, peeled and cut into fine strips

  • 6 cherry tomatoes, cut in half

  • 1 stem fresh Celery

  • Fresh young mint

  • 1 lime, cut into thin slices

  • 1 mango, must be ripe

  • 80mls nice whole egg mayonnaise

  • Sea salt and white pepper for seasoning

  • 100g avocado (pureed with a little lime juice, or you can buy a good puree in your local deli)

  • Extra virgin olive oil infused with chilli (once again, you can find this in your deli)

Method

  • 1.

    For the Mango Mayo peel and pip your mango, place in a food processor with the mayonnaise and blend til smooth, season with the salt and pepper, you may need a little warm water if it is too thick

  • 2.

    Peel your prawns and keep in the fridge until you are ready to use them,

  • 3.

    Cut the Tuna into nice little brick like shapes and sauté them off in olive with salt and pepper trying to get a nice brown around the outside without cooking the Tuna too much. Cut into even sizes (this dish is designed to be eaten with just a fork.

  • 4.

    Mix the vegetables together with a little seasoning and some of the olive oil,

  • 5.

    Now this is the fun part, it’s up to you, arrange everything on your plates,

  • 6.

    I like to place the avocado on the plate and smear it across so all of the salad and seafood gets a little, then spoon the mango mayo around in little dollops with the cherry tomatoes and tuna placed on top,

  • 7.

    I then arrange the prawns and lime parallel to this, then through the middle I get creative with my sliced vegetables and fresh mint leaves and splash a little more of the chilli infused olive oil around the plate, remember this can be a little little spicy so if you don’t like too much spice then be sparing with the chilli oil (it’s ok to just substitute with a good quality extra virgin olive oil for this purpose)

  • 8.

    Now present to your friends and enjoy
