Hi guys, Luke Mangan here with another Aussie Christmas favourite. My cold prawn mango and avocado salsa and it's a really great value dish. While we’re all thinking about the mains this Christmas, it's often the sides and entrees that can make your Christmas lunch absolutely perfect and how good a mangos this time of the year by the way. They remind me of Christmas, so let's get started.
So I've got a whole avocado nice and ripe cut it in half peeled it and I'm just gonna roughly dice that up. Just like that, really simple. Then I'm gonna add some diced mango so I’ve got about one whole mango peeled and diced and then I'm just going to add 2 cloves of garlic which I’ve just chopped, beautiful and then I've got some ginger very finely grate that in.
Ginger and mango is one of those perfect combinations I just love. A bit of white wine vinegar ,about 2 tablespoons of good olive oil and then some salt and pepper and you know what's going to make this absolutely perfect? A little bit of lime juice and that just adds a nice beautiful flavor to it, that Christmas spirit. Alright so that’s all in there, mix it well through quite nicely and let it sit aside for about 3 to 5 minutes while we're getting the lettuce and everything else already.
So I’ve got iceberg lettuce which is absolutely beautiful this time of the year. So just put that on the base, push it down ever so slightly, beautiful, splash of vinegar white wine vinegar. Splash of olive oil. Twist of Salt and then a little secret ingredient is one of the simple, good mayonnaises that you can get. And then I get these beautiful sweet aussie prawns, beautiful mango avocado salsa, Christmas in a bowl, but wait there's more, I’m gonna finish it, just with a few coriander leaves.
So there you have it my cold cooked prawns with beautiful mango avocado salsa sitting on that iceberg lettuce. This simple great value Christmas dish works perfectly with any Christmas meal.
