King Prawn, Scallop Ginger & Black Rice Salad

King Prawn, Scallop, Ginger & Rice Salad

Serves: 2-3

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes (a bit longer if using pack of dried rice)

Total time: 20 minutes

I got the idea originally from a Waitrose Recipe and then decided to tweak it to make it a little more interesting by adding scallops and green edame beans, which seem to feature in a number of Asian styled recipes.    You could subsitute or use a combination of Wild Rice with the black rice


1 tbsp sunflower oil

1 red pepper, diced

2cm piece root ginger, peeled and finely chopped

2-4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

180g pack Waitrose Raw Jumbo King Prawns

Pack of Waitrose Scallops

Pack of Waitrose Green Edame Beans (optional)
250g pack Riso Gallo Venere Expresso Rice (or you can buy dried black rice and cook according to Manufacturer's instructions)

6 salad onions, thinly sliced
½ tsp Cooks’ Ingredients Crushed Chilli (optional)
60g pack Waitrose Watercress, Rocket & Spinach Salad
Lime wedges, to serve 


1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the red pepper for 4-5 minutes. Add the ginger, garlic and prawns (and scallops if using) and cook for 1 minute.

2. Stir in the rice, salad onions, edame beans, (chillies, if using) and 100ml water. Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring until the prawns are cooked through and the rice is piping hot.

3. Tip the mixture into a large serving bowl and fold through the salad leaves. Serve with lime wedges for squeezing over.
