Salad Prawn is one of our local Malaysian favorites, deep-fried prawn served with slightly sourish mayonnaise sauce is as appetizing as it sounds. The layers of the fried prawn’s batter are fragrance and go really well with the mayonnaise sauce. I reinvent the usual salad prawn recipe and made it red with fresh vibrant fruits. My Salad Prawn recipe is sure to amaze you!

Author have a say…

Malaysian Salad Prawn is one of the most common dishes especially when we are having dim sum. It is not one of the delicate dim sum dishes but it is more of a comfort food dim sum dish. I have slightly twisted this dish, so there is more western style into it – more tangy, zesty, and more interesting! Check it out how I made it red!
