Thai Banana Salsa with King Prawns

Sharing is caring!

Extremely refreshing. I make extra salsa to keep in the fridge for a pick-me-up after a long day at uni. You can serve it on a banana leaf with lime wedges.


  • 2 bananas, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 cucumbers – peeled, seeded, and diced
  • ½ cup fresh mint leaves
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger root
  • 1 fresh red chile pepper, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 ½ pounds tiger prawns, peeled and deveined


In a large bowl, mix bananas, cucumbers, mint, cilantro, ginger, and red chile pepper to make salsa.

In a small bowl, blend lime juice, fish sauce, and brown sugar until sugar has dissolved. Thoroughly mix into the salsa.

Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Place prawns in the water, and cook 3 minutes, or until flesh is opaque. Serve with the banana salsa.
