Gino's Caesar Salad with Grilled Prawn Skewer

The first recipe for our blog would be an all time favourtie, Caesar Salad! :) I thought of starting off easy and as time goes, I would share more complex recipes that you can try :)

Today Caesar Salad is by Gino D'Acampo but instead of using grilled chicken, he has replaced it with grilled prawns and F.Y.I it is to die for! :)

So here's the recipe:

No caesar salad is complete with crusty croutons (fried cubes of bread):

4              thick slices bread
3-4 tbsp   olive oil

Method: heat the oil on a pan and fry the bread till crispy BUT NOT burn :) don't want any bitter taste in the salad :) OR you can coat the cubes of bread in olive oil, put in on a baking tray and in the oven at 150C or 300F for about 5-10mins till crispy.

Now the dressing of the salad:

80g           Parmesan cheese
2              egg yolks
1/2tsp       Dijon mustard
3 cloves    garlic
4-6           fresh anchovy fillet
200ml       olive oil
2 tbsp       white wine vinegar
1/2            lime, juice only
salt & pepper to taste

Method: Blend all ingredients together. Taste as you go and feel free to adjust the recipe to suit your taste buds :) Besides, you can also adjust the viscosity of the dressing, either by adding more cheese or lesser olive oil.

Grilled prawn skewers:

5-7          wooden skewer, soaked in water
18-20      large King Prawns, head off and vein peeled

Prawn Marination:

olive oil
lemon juice
handful chopped parley
salt & pepper to taste

Method: Mixed marination together in a bowl. Then, preheat the grill or a griddle pan. Placed 3-4 prawns on each skewer depending on the size of the prawns. Then, generously brush each skewer with the marination. After that, place the prawn skewers on the preheated griddle pan and cook for 1-2 mins on each side while basting the prawns with the marinade as you go.


300g      Romaine Lettuce (roughly chopped)
Handful of cherry tomatoes

Method: Prepare in a large bowl of roughly chopped Romaine Lettuce and cherry tomatoes with the prepared croutons and pour in the dressing. Mixed till all is covered with the dressing. Sprinkle some shaved parmesan or chopped bacon for garnish.

And finally, when the prawns skewers are done, serve it together with the salad.
