Prawn, chicken and wing bean salad


"This Vietnamese-inspired dish is one I've been making for years," says D'Sylva. "I included it at Tonka as a contrast to the heavier, spicier dishes."

You'll need

400 ml coconut milk 1 skinless chicken breast fillet 300 gm wing beans (see note), trimmed, strings removed 80 ml (1/3 cup) lime juice 2 tbsp fish sauce 2 tbsp coconut cream 1 heaped tbsp roasted chilli powder 1 tbsp finely ground roasted peanuts 1 tsp shaved light palm sugar 1 each long green and long red chilli, thinly sliced 250 gm peeled cooked prawns, halved 5 coriander sprigs, torn 5 mint sprigs, torn To serve: fried shallots, roasted coconut flakes and lime wedges

Method

  • 01
  • Combine coconut milk, chicken and 400ml water in a saucepan and bring to the simmer over medium-high heat. Remove and stand until cooled to room temperature. Drain (discard liquid), shred meat and refrigerate until required.
  • 02
  • Blanch wing beans until bright green (1-2 minutes), then drain, refresh, drain again, thinly slice and set aside.
  • 03
  • Combine lime juice, fish sauce, coconut cream, chilli powder, peanut, palm sugar and chillies in a large bowl. Add chicken, prawns, beans and herbs, and toss. Serve scattered with fried shallots and coconut flakes, with lime wedges for squeezing.
