Prawn Salad with Mango Mayonnaise

I made this salad a year ago before I started blogging.  I had this friend travelled a lot for work and he took some photos of the food he had when travelling first class in the plane.  The food served at first class was much better than the one I had when I travelled economy class.  As I probably don't have the chance travelling first class so I start making the dishes from his photos and  start cooking more and more western style food until I decide to challenge myself and start blogging about food.  Although I still haven't had the confidence in handling big chuck of meat such as roast leg of lamb and roast turkey etc., I am having more experience in using herbs and trying out new recipes.  What I like about this salad is that I do not put any salt and sugar into it and it tastes so fresh and natural.  My husband bought a tray of mango home the other day and I'd just love to make this salad again!

Prawn Salad with Mango Mayonnaise

fresh raw prawns
green salad
1 mango (1/2 sliced, 1/2 leave for mayonnaise)
1-2 tablespoons low fat mayonnaise
olive oil


  1. Remove heads and shell from prawns, use a toothpick to remove the poo vein.  Heat oil in pan and pan fried the prawns until cooked, season with some pepper and paprika. 
  2. Arrange salad onto the plate with mango and avocado then topped with cooked prawns.  Drizzle with some olive oil if wished. 
  3. For the mayonnaise: Cut mango into dice and blend it with mayonnaise into a blender until smooth.  Drizzle the mango mayonnaise over the salad.
