uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
grapefruit, peeled and sectioned
red onion, thinly sliced
avocado, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice
Thai fish sauce
fresh red chile pepper, finely chopped
chopped fresh cilantro
Amazingly flavorful!! I substituted a tablespoon or so of sweet thai chili sauce instead of the chili pepper and brown sugar. Served with corn muffins this was a perfect supper for a hot summer evening.
I made this hot and it was really easy to make. I liked it but the rest of the family was not crazy about it and just picked out the shrimp. It was much better cold the next day. I like the mix of spicy and tart.
I return again and again to Swiss Phil's recipes and his recommendations. They all seem so good and aimed at me and the Café in which I work. This is as he describes, sensually spicy, and has rapidly become a big hit. We call it Thai Prawns with Grapefruit! And when we ran out of it, I just went a bought some cooked prawns and used them with no real difference detectable.
Excellent! Delivers everything promised! Love it! Can use pre-packaged cooked prawns if you like. Perhaps not an authentic Thai recipe, but then the title DOES say it's Thai-style.
This was simple to make and very tasty to eat - so the best review wording would be "Simply brilliant". Thanks for sharing.
I tried this recipe because we love grapefruit/avocado salads. Sadly, this was not at all what I was expecting. I'm guessing I bought the wrong type of fish sauce (I thought it was Thai, but maybe not) because as soon as I put it on the dish smelled rank.
