When I make fennel salad, I always make the same salad. It’s ‘Fennel & Orange Salad’. Boring, isn’t it? I should have created a new fennel salad. I tried to make an Asian flavoured fennel salad, but ‘Ponzu’ and soy sauce based dressings were not really good with fennel. Then, I discovered that the sweet chilli sauce and fish sauce were surprisingly good! If you have never tried the Asian flavoured fennel salad, you got to try this!
Fennel 1/2 *about 180g
Coriander 20 to 30g
Cooked Prawns 100g
Garlic 1 clove *finely chopped
Fish Sauce 1 tablespoon
Sweet Chilli Sauce 1 to 2 tablespoons
*Note: You can make Sweet Chilli Sauce by mixing same amount of Chilli Garlic Sauce and Sugar.
Thinly slice Fennel. Wash Coriander well and pick the leaves and finely chop the stems.
Place Garlic, Fish Sauce and Sweet Chilli Sauce in a large bowl, and mix well. Add Fennel, Coriander and cooked Prawns, and combine well. Serve immediately.
This salad is great with rice noodles.
