Prawn salad with chilli & white cabbage

prawn and cabbage salad

Serves 4

  • 3 handfuls fresh, raw, small shelled prawns, from sustainable sources, ask your fishmonger

  • juice of 3 lemons

  • plus the finely grated zest of ½ a lemon

  • 1 red chilli, seeded and finely sliced

  • ½ white cabbage, finely shredded

  • extra virgin olive oil

  • fresh chervil

Put the prawns into a shallow dish. Squeeze over the juice of 2 lemons, toss them around a little so the lemon juice coats them, then leave them to marinate for 15–20 minutes until pink all over. Drain off the juice.



Mix the chilli with the cabbage, add your finely grated lemon zest, then add the marinated prawns, a splash of olive oil and the juice of your remaining lemon. Toss gently together with the chervil, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and arrange on your plates.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
