Healthy Prawn and Melon Salad
A few days ago, I bought some ready cooked prawns in one of the supermarkets. It came ready cooked and can be eaten after thawing. So I bought a pack of 800g, it is from Spain, and let it defrost in the fridge. Later, I came across some cheap melons in another supermarket and decided to just buy one on the whim as I am into eating a lot of fruits and vegetables.
I had the prawns and dipped it in soy, as the way like it in Malaysia. However, there were lots of left- overs. I made prawn pizza. Still there were some prawns left, and it needs to be consumed within 48 hours.
So not wanting to waste, and noticing that I still have half a melon left, I decided to make prawn salad to use up all the left-overs. I have some healthy yogurt in the fridge and so I have all the ingredients.
So here is the recipe.
