This super-easy salad comes together in no time. The pan seared prawns are combined with Romaine lettuce, fresh herbs and gooseberries, and then tossed with a light vinaigrette dressing that can be served as either appetizer or entrée.

SaladDressing

  • Cilantro or parsley leaves
  • 200 g Gooseberries
  • 200 g Prawns, deveined
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • 1-2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Maple syrup or honey
  • 1 Small garlic clove, minced
  • Salt and black pepper
  1. Place Romaine lettuce, cilantro leaves and gooseberries in a serving plater.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, maple syrup, minced garlic, salt and pepper.
  3. Season the prawns with the salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the prawns and cook until they are just cooked through, 2-3 minutes.
  4. Spoon the prawns over the salad. Drizzle with the dressing.

What a fresh and refreshing salad. It must be hot where you are? In England it feels so much autumn now. Cold and rainy :-( Looking forward to go to Italy!!

This looks wonderful - I've never had gooseberries but they seem perfect for a summer salad with the prawns!

Yum! I love some shrimp on a salad and this is a great summer lunch. I like how you cooked them with the skin on...it has great flavor and that salt & pepper really adheres to it.

Gooseberries are something that are very hard to find here. i had a bush once but never got a berry! Pretty salad, Angie and you know I adore shrimp!

[Reply]
SavoringTime in the Kitchen 27/7/15 23:23

Just like some things are easy to find here and not there - I don't think I've never seen a gooseberry here. They are beautiful! The salad, shrimp and dressing all sound wonderful and salad meals in the summer are perfect!

Eva Taylor 28/7/15 01:19

Beautiful dish Angie, just love the colours. Have you considered grilling the romaine? It's out of this world, just slightly wilted! I usually rub garlic on it with a little olive oil.

I don't know if I've ever seen gooseberries around here. What gorgeous little berrries and an even more gorgeous salad. Very clever idea to use shrimp as the salad's protein.

[Reply]
Liz Berg 28/7/15 03:53

Oh, boy, what a perfect summer meal. I don't think we have access to gooseberries, but I think this would be scrumptious with any berry :)

Oh those gooseberries look wonderful! I haven't seen red ones before...we had green in England that I remember.
Love the flavour combo too!

Gorgeous salad Angie and I'm always up for prawns no matter how they're served. I don't think I've ever tasted a gooseberry. I'll keep my eye out for them here. Their color in the salad is so pretty.

Those gooseberries are so pretty Angie - what a wonderful way to feature them with the green lettuce and perfectly seared prawns - I would eat two helpings of this and skip the main course!

Oh those prawns look wonderful, Angie! They really make a salad special. And I've always wanted to try gooseberries. I wonder how available they are.....but definitely worth the hunt!

I had already decided on shrimp for dinner tonight and here you are with the perfect, light summer recipe. Will be switching out the berries because Minnesota's gooseberries aren't in until September. Now you have me wishing that dinnertime would come and it's only 9 a.m.!

What a wonderful salad, my husband would love this --- and I have to confess, I've never tasted a gooseberry!! I'm not sure I can even get them here in the States...I wonder what is the closest substitute? Grapes?

Hi Angie, after a month absence, I'm back again...can't pass up your beautiful and unusual delicious salad with gooseberries and prawns! The last time I had gooseberries when I visited relatives in Hungary. They have an abundance of these lovely berries growing in their garden. I love your salad and would make it as a full meal for me which is so perfect for my weight loss program. Have a wonderful week, ahead!
