Tiger Prawns and Mango Salsa

I have finally succumbed to it! I have defiled my blog by posting something unrelated to baking. I have of late decided to venture into the realms of haute cuisine or rather pseudo haute cuisine (if there exists such a thing).
This Tiger Prawn Mango Salsa is a start - may be my last...but nevertheless, I attempted to whip up something edible that is so MasterChef like.
I took the recipe from Daniel Green and this salsa, and for his other recipes too, has a strong Thai influence. The verdict: Not bad. Spicy enough for me as I added cut chilli padi. The salsa is nicely balanced with the sweet and ripe mango pieces and a dash of lime juice. Although the recipe called for the prawns to be plainly cooked, I could not resist but to marinate them in pepper and soy sauce before giving them a shallow frying.
Well, we shall see if I would be posting more food stuff instead of cakes and pastries.
