A new recipe game, who want´s to play? Prawn salad with Farro and Cannellini beans

by soffiagudrun

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.
