Last month, I joined in with the Read Cook Eat challenge, co-hosted by Galina at Chez Maximka and Chris at Cooking Around The World, and vowed to join in again this month. Whereas last time, I linked up a few old posts that tied in with books, I set myself the added challenge of trying to find a recipe for every new book that I finish reading.
Well, I've just finished reading Craig Robertson's Last Refuge - click on the title to read my review - and, while the book itself doesn't really mention any recipes, I decided to take the exotic location of the Faroe Islands as my starting point. A quick google search revealed such gourmet delights as sheep's head, dried whale blubber, cod heads and stuffed puffins, none of which I fancied strangely enough, so there wasn't a great deal of genuinely geographic gastronomical inspiration. I therefore decided to just go for something vaguely fishy !
Mango Vinegar Prawn Salad
some lettuce leaves
1 tomato, sliced
2tbsp green olives
1/2 cup king prawns
1/4 red pepper, thinly sliced
3 tbsp Maille Mango Vinegar
Roughly pull apart the washed lettuce leaves with your hands and use it to line a plate. Arrange the tomato, red pepper and olives around the sides . (I was rather pleased with my tomato hearts that happened quite by accident !) Pile the prawns in the centre and drizzle mango vinegar all over everything.
I served this with a hunk of the Thyme, Sea Salt & Bergamot Focaccia that I made the other day.
