Spot Prawn Ceviche

 

• 1 English cucumber, sliced into thin rounds
• 2 oz mixed baby greens
• 16 extremely fresh spot prawns, peeled
• 1/2 cup fresh lime juice, strained
• 1 whole vanilla bean, split
• 1 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
• 1 1/2 Tablespoons Mirin*

In a small bowl mix together the lime juice, sugar, Mirin and scrape the vanilla beans into the mixture. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Add the spot prawns and stir to coat. Place the mixture in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Arrange the cucumber slices in circles on to four plates. Mound a small amount of the baby greens in the center of each circle and top with 4 of the spot prawns. Drizzle a little of the marinade over each salad. Serve immediately.**

  * Mirin is a sweet Japanese wine available in Asian markets.
** This is a raw seafood dish and should be served and eaten immediately.
