Marion’s Kitchen Prawn Salad Recipes

If there’s one thing that is guaranteed to make any bland, boring salad better…it’s prawns! And these are the prawn salad recipes that are anything but sad! Juicy prawns, fresh veg and so much flavour, these prawn salads will have you eating your greens and liking them! If you’ve been looking for a way to make friends with salad, prawns are the way to go. 


These prawn salads are the perfect lunch option if you’re looking for a midday pick-me-up, or they’re a delicious weeknight dinner if you’re after something that’s speedy AND virtuous. 


You’ll never want salad any other way!

What should I add to prawn salads?

Prawn salads, they’re delicious, they’re fresh, they’re totally customisable and they’re one of my favourite things to whip up for a midday lunchtime pick-me-up or a super speedy, fuss free dinner. But there are so many things that can take your prawn salads from drab to fab! 


Firstly, if you’re looking for a more filling alternative to your stock standard salads, try sourcing inspiration from our prawn noodle recipes! Adding noodles (or any sort of carby goodness) to your salads is bound to make your stomach (and soul) happy! 


 You can also add some extra pizazz to your prawns if you’re wanting to spice things up in another simple way! Add something extra to your prawn salads by using battered prawn recipes, or even garlic prawn recipes to add something special to your prawns before cooking! 


Adding any sort of fruit generally fares well, the combination of sweet, salty, savoury is one that few can go past. Fresh veg always helps, and so do fresh herbs – some freshly grown basil or mint leaves tossed through your next prawn recipe wouldn’t go astray! Trust me! 


What can I do with already cooked prawns?

If you have got a surplus of cooked prawns on hand and you are stumped for ideas on what to do with them, prawn salads are THE go. Prawn salads are one of the fastest (and most delicious) ways to use up any leftover prawns you have floating around in your kitchen…just make sure they’re cooked first!
