Prawn and pickled green mango salad

Friends brought over 2 green mangoes from their tree. Reportedly the husband was injured trying to catch a mango falling off the tree. It bounced off his hands and hit him where it really hurt. So I made them a mango salad as a reward for the efforts. 

The dish is very simple, mango, carrot and prawns pickled in a fish sauce, apple cider vinegar and sugar, mixed with coriander, green shallot and sesame oil and sesame seeds.

Ingredients

  • 1 green mango, skin peeled and julienne
  • 1 large carrot, skin peeled and julienne
  • 6-8 large green prawns, peeled and de-vained (I used wild caught Australian green prawns)
  • 1/2 cup of chopped coriander
  • 1 tbsp. of green shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • 2/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

Method

Bring a pot of water to boil; add prawns, turn off the heat and let the prawns cooked gently; approx 3 minutes or until the prawns are cooked; take out the prawns and rinse prawns under tap water to cool.

Mix caster sugar, apple cider vinegar, fish sauce; add green mango, carrot and prawns; add sufficient water to cover the ingredients; leave it in fridge for 2-3 hours.

After 2-3 hours, drain off the liquid; mix in green shallot, coriander, sesame seeds and sesame oil; transfer to a plate to serve.
