Prawn Salsa

For the past few days I am not being able to catch up with my fellow blogger friends properly. As the Durga puja is only a month away , I am a little messed up with all the to do list. This salsa recipe was just an experiment. I was actually not sure of the outcome , but it really tasted nice. A simple recipe : Prawn Salsa.

Ingredients :

1. Prawn (large)- 1 cup
2. Green olive- 4
3. Cherry tomato- 5 to 6
4. Spring onion (chopped)- 2 tbs
5. Garlic- 3 cloves
6. Lemon juice- 1 tsp
7. Chilly Tabasco- few drops
8. Parsley- 2 tbs
9. Coriander leaf- 1/2 cup
10. Black pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
11. Roasted cumin powder- 1/2 tsp
12. Basil leaf- 5 to 6
13. Salt to taste
14. Olive oil
15. Dark soy sauce- 1 tbs
16. Cream- 2 large tbs
17. Tomato ketchup sauce- 1 tbs

Procedure :

First marinate the prawn with dark soy sauce , a little salt and pepper for 10 minutes. Now heat 2 tbs oil in a non stick pan and add chopped spring onion , olive , garlic , tomato , pepper , lemon juice , Tabasco , tomato ketchup sauce , cumin , salt. Saute fry them for a minute or two and add the prawns to it. Fry both the sides of the prawns for a minute. Add the cream to it and mix well.

Let the cream dries up a bit and add the basil leaf and parsley to it. Make a paste of the coriander leaf and keep it aside. When everything is dried up , turn off the heat. Serve the Prawn salsa with roasted papad and pour the coriander paste on top of it.
