3. Tips for Asparagus Salad with Prawns
The basis for the salad is a crisp, fresh, colorful leaf salad enriched with asparagus and tomatoes.
The fried Prawns come as a topping on the salad.
I use fresh leaf lettuce, the more colorful the better…. the varieties are:
Lollo Rosso, Lollo Bianco, Radicchio, Oak leaf lettuce, Lamb’s lettuce….
My asparagus comes this time in boiling salted water. Cooked al dente, I marinate the asparagus later.
You can use green or white fresh asparagus.
I have used fresh white asparagus here.
The green asparagus is usually available around the year in the supermarket, the white asparagus has season in Germany from April to June.
Otherwise, it is imported goods.
I add prawns to this salad as a topping.
You can recognize raw prawns by the gray color.
Please thaw frozen prawns in cold water, remove from the shell and dry.
I pan fry the prawns briefly and quickly over high heat.
One of my favorite dressings is the standard dressing of my loved ones:
a mixture of white wine vinegar, orange juice, oil, mustard, honey and spices.
It goes exceptionally well with my asparagus salad.
