For this week's Woolworths MasterChef SA Spice Challenge, I delve into the wonders of Zanzibar the Spice Island and make a Parsi dish, a prawn dhansak. Freddie Mercury was born in Zanzibar and was Parsi- did you know? Dhansak uses a variety of spices, lentils and in this case mango and pineapple pulp and lime juice. Serve with a mango and pineapple salsa.

Prawn, Mange Tout & Cashew Nut Salad on Rice Noodles with Asian style dressing

By combining prawns (sweet and delicate), mange tout (or bok choi /baby spinach leaves if they're in season) (crisp and bursting with a pop of colour), along with roasted cashew nuts (crunch and creaminess), you've got the perfect starting point for creating an Asian dish with complex but harmonious elements. Piled onto thin rice or glass noodles and jazzed up with a zingy dressing, this makes for a slurp-worth meal. So much more than just a salad.
