The Birthday Dinner: Course 2 Coconut Prawns with Pineapple Salsa

This was course 2 of Liz’s birthday dinner. Simple and easy was the theme of the night. We also had these by the Bare Pool at the Mirage, great on a summers day!

1/4 cup panko crumbs
1/2 shredded coconut

Oil for frying
1/4 red onion, finely diced
1/2 red chilli, finely diced
1/2 cup fresh or canned pineapple, finely chopped

1 tbs green Tabasco

Peel and devein prawns, leaving the tail on.

Combine all salsa ingredients, onion, chilli, pineapple, coriander and Tabasco, mix well, set aside.
