  • Prawn and Iceberg Salad Recipe

    I live in Italy and saw a programme with Nigella that had a prawn and Iceberg lettuce salad with a wasabi and saki dressing. Unfortunately I didn't catch the ingredients and am unable to find it on the website. Could you please let me know where I can find a copy? Many thanks vix592

    From the nigella team:

    We suspect that the recipe you are looking for is Nigella's Japanese Prawns that appears in TV show "Kitchen". The raw prawns (shrimp) are stir-fried until just pink, then dresses with a combination of sake, lime juice, wasabi and salt. The prawns can be served with salad leaves, but are also good with rice or noodles.

    Unfortunately the recipe is not currently available on-line and we don't have space to publish full recipes in Kitchen Queries. The recipe can be found on p.190 of Nigella's book KItchen. And if the Japanese Prawns recipe appeals to you then you may also like to try Nigella's Pink Picante Prawns recipe, which is on the Nigella website.
