  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the shrimp, and return to a boil. Cook the shrimp until they are bright pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool.
  2. Combine the grapefruit, onion, avocado, lime juice, fish sauce, chile pepper, and brown sugar in a large bowl. Top grapefruit salad with cooked shrimp, and sprinkle with chopped cilantro.

I return again and again to Swiss Phil's recipes and his recommendations. They all seem so good and aimed at me and the Café in which I work. This is as he describes, sensually spicy, and has rapidly become a big hit. We call it Thai Prawns with Grapefruit! And when we ran out of it, I just went a bought some cooked prawns and used them with no real difference detectable.

Amazingly flavorful!! I substituted a tablespoon or so of sweet thai chili sauce instead of the chili pepper and brown sugar. Served with corn muffins this was a perfect supper for a hot summer evening.

Excellent! Delivers everything promised! Love it! Can use pre-packaged cooked prawns if you like. Perhaps not an authentic Thai recipe, but then the title DOES say it's Thai-style.
