The good thing about asking what to have for dinner is that I got recipes I haven´t tried before, one of them being a very fresh salad with blackened prawns.
The funny thing, I got it from a fellow blogger who had adapted it from another food blogger and now I´m adapting it… It´s like the whispering game…You say a word in someones ear and ten ears later it´s a totally different word.
Now someone needs to try my recipe and adapt it. I don´t know how this game would work…who wants to adapt my recipe? 🙂
This is the original recipe:
Mango and Avocado Quinoa Salad with Blackened Shrimp
My fellow blogger, Trials in food:
Recipe (adapted from Daily Crave)
Here is my recipe:
Yellow, red, green and shrimp. I haven´t bought prawns for a long time, I always buy the small lobster tail when I find it on a good price. What I love about this salad is the combination of warm and cold ingredients, the warm farro, beans and prawns and then fresh raw veggies. It was a big hit at the dinner table tonight.
Instead of Quinoa I used organic Farro. I didn´t have black beans so I used Cannellini beans. I didn´t have cilantro and I skipped cumin. Instead of Farro one could also use Barley.
Prawn salad with Farro and Cannellini beans (adapted from Trials in food) for 3-4
- 1 cup Farro (boiled for 40 min or so)
- 2 red peppers
- 3 carrots
- 1 cup Cannellini beans (boiled or canned)
- 3-4 green onions
- 1/2 cucumber
- 2 tomatoes
- 1/2 cup sweet corn ( you can skip this if you don´t get good corn)
- 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
- juice from 1/2 lemon
- Tiger Prawns (I used about 12)
- Blackening seasoning for the prawns, I used paprika, oregano, hot pizza spice mix, salt and pepper.
Boil beans, boil Farro. Dice the veggies rather small. Blackened the prawns. Mix everything together in a big bowl and serve.

It is a beautiful light beam and even more impressive when the Northern Lights are around.
