1. For the dressing pound the chilli and garlic to a robust paste in a mortar and pestle, add lime juice and fish sauce and set to the side. Adjust the dressing to your liking.
2. In a bowl combine all the salad ingredients and keep to one side of the bowl, add the sliced prawns to the other side, spoon the dressing over the prawns then gently combine with the herbs.
3. Serve in the centre of a plate, and sprinkle with some extra crispy fried shallots or roasted peanuts.
Remember recipes are just guidelines experiment with some of your own flavours, you can add cooked vermicelli rice noodles for a noodle salad or used cooked crab meat instead of prawns. Enjoy!
