“Extremely refreshing. I make extra salsa to keep in the fridge for a pick-me-up after a long day at uni. You can serve it on a banana leaf with lime wedges.”

i loved this recipe! altho perhaps calling it a 'salsa' is a tad misleading. it's best eaten with plain rice, asian style, which might explain why the flavors were too strong for some reviewers, hehe! try a small teaspoon of this on a large rice cracker as finger food.



My boyfriend loved this recipe, but unfortunately I didn't. I found the taste of the fish sauce and all that cilantro too strong. The prawns that the recipe called for are just too large - you have to eat a bite of prawn, then a bite of the salsa. If you like cilantro, you should try this recipe - but I suggest you use small shrimp that can be eaten with the salsa in the same bite.



This is an interesting combo and so very delicious! Very easy to make as well. I have made this many times and love it the more I make it! I mix the prawns in and eat it with a spoon I love it so much! Goes good served as an appy with french bread too. If you love cilantro, mint and lime juice you will love this recipe!!
