Grilled Tandoori Prawn Salad with Mango Dressing Recipe

March 5, 2014

Similar to the tandoori oven cooking method, these Indian-spiced prawn skewers are roasted on high heat on the grill and added to a salad packed with bold sweet and sour flavours. A fresh mango dressing adds a splash of fruitiness and colour. Plus it’s ready in 30 minutes, making it one of our favourite quick dinner ideas.
