Quick Spicy Prawn Salad

Sharing is caring!

A quick and easy spicy prawn salad recipe that can be ready to eat in just 10 minutes. Delicious healthy midweek dinner for two.

Our quick prawn salad recipe is great for a busy weeknight dinner. It’s tasty, healthy and super quick to throw together.

This delicious seafood salad is one of my go-to dinner recipes when the kids have already eaten tea early and I’m just cooking for myself and my husband.

If I’m eating dinner late then I prefer a light salad to heavy meal, it just feels fresher and healthier!

Well… we’re going to cheat with the ingredients. When I want dinner ready fast, cheating is the best way for me to do that.

I buy ready prepared and ready cooked ingredients so all I really have to do is toss the food together and make it look pretty. And for midweek dinner for two, I’m good with that!

Spicy Prawn Salad Ingredients

  • Bag of prepared salad leaves (I use a Bistro mix)
  • 1/4 cucumber – sliced
  • 200g baby tomatoes – halved
  • 1 lemon cut into wedges
  • 200g cooked king prawns
  • 2 tbs spicy salad dressing (I use an Oriental style dressing with garlic, ginger and soy)

How to make spicy prawn salad

  • Just scatter the salad leaves, cucumbers and tomatoes over two plates.
  • Toss over the cooked prawns and drizzle over the spicy dressing.

Make the salad your way

  • Switch the prawns for cooked chicken or salmon
  • Add more salad veggies 
  • Use a milder dressing – this works well with Caesar dressing

  • Perfect for a quick midweek dinner for two. 
  • Leftovers great in packed lunches.
  • I like to just serve this salad with a couple of slices of garlic and herb ciabatta. But you can make it more of a meal by adding a side of rice or grains, potato wedges or French fries. 
  • Our quick prawn salad is also AMAZING drizzled with Keto Yum Yum sauce – a creamy, sweet dipping sauce with just a kick of spice! Totally delicious.
