  • 1 x Sliced Ginger Root.

Steps for cooking

    First, prepare the Nahm Jim Dressing:

  • 1.Using a pestle and mortar, bruise the garlic cloves one garlic clove at a time. If you also have coriander root you can add it here.
  • 2.Add in the birds-eye chillies and some coarse sea salt to act as an abrasive and pound.
  • 3.Next, add the palm sugar, the juice of the limes & mandarins, stir to mix.
  • 4.Add fish sauce and tamarind paste. Keep mixing in the pestle and mortar until it is all combined.
  • Time to taste, if too sweet add more chillies and if too spicy add more palm sugar.

    For the Ceviche Prawn salad:

  • 1. Slice the King prawns in half (this will make the ceviche process quicker!). Place the halved prawns in a bowl and pure over half of the Nahm Jim Dressing.
  • 2. The prawns are cooked when they go opaque (this should be around 3 mins).
  • 3. In another bowl add the pomelo, sliced ginger, coriander, mint, and the king prawns
  • 4. Pour over the remaining Nahm Jim dressing and garnish with fresh chillies and some wheels of mandarin.
