Thought I would share this easy recipe with everyone.

1kg local bay prawns direct from trawler $15/kilo :) peeled and deveined.

Salad dressing

1table spoon white vinegar
1table spoon caster sugar
2 table spoon boiling water
juice of two limes from Burnie Brae community garden.
1table spoon sambel olek .
1 garlic clove chop fine.
1 .5 table spoon fish sauce.

From our garden mostly 3 types of perpetual pic lettuce , some coriander,
a little mint, 2 sliced carrots, 2 perennial
sweet capsicums sliced thin and some parsley.

Add some roasted cashews.

Also add sweet potato chips as garnish again from Burnie Brae community garden.

The local prawns were so fresh. Simple ingredients and healthy fresh food, mostly
