TENDER ASPARAGUS AND STEAMED PRAWNS WITH PISTACHIO OIL PEARLS AND AVOCADO
A beautifully composed salad is art. Add a sweet yet sharp apple onto, steamed, juicy prawns and you have fresh flavour. This salad is a treat, the additional combination of tender asparagus is certainly green heaven with prawns.
When describing the aroma of the prawns in this fresh, crisp salad, it is can be described as nutty. Adding Azada’s Pistachio Oil Pearls into the mix, creates a harmonious delight which complements the flavour from the prawns to create a beautiful dish with the subtlety of pistachio coming through with each bite.

Meanwhile, set out a large serving plate and place the avocado, white asparagus and coriander onto the plate. Add the prawns and green asparagus and decorate with the apples and the jalapeños. Season with salt and pepper and serve with Azada’s Pistachio Oil Pearls.
