Grilled Mustard-Soy Marinated Prawns With Apple & Radish Salad In A Miso-Mustard Vinaigrette

Miso-Mustard Vinaigrette
 1 ½ Tbsp dry Japanese hot mustard or dry mustard powder
 2 Tbsp warm water
 ¼ cup white (Saikyo) miso or red miso
 2 Tbsp honey
 3 Tbsp rice vinegar
 ½ cup canola oil
 1 ½ Tbsp canola oil
 2 Tbsp ginger, finely minced
 2 green onions, finely minced
 1 juice of one lime
 ¼ cup low sodium soy sauce
 ¼ cup honey mustard
 1 clove garlic, minced
 2 Tbsp cilantro, finely chopped
 ½ tsp dried thyme
 ½ tsp dried red chili flakes
 12 - 16 large prawns, peeled and deveined
 2 Fuji apples, cored and cut into thin julienne
 8 medium radishes, trimmed, rinsed and thinly sliced
 4 cups mixed baby greens, rinsed and dried
 ½ cup pine nuts, toasted

In a mixing bowl blend together the hot powdered mustard and warm water until smooth. Stir and blend in miso, honey and rice vinegar until well incorporated. Whisk in 1/2 cup canola oil until emulsified. Stir in 1 tablespoon each ginger and green onions.


Cover and chill until ready to use. If too thick, whisk in some hot water until desired consistency.


Mix together the lime juice, soy sauce, honey mustard, remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil, garlic, cilantro, thyme, chili flakes and remaining 1 tablespoon ginger. Mix until well blended. Add prawns and toss to coat evenly. Cover, refrigerate and marinate for 15 minutes, stirring once or twice.


Preheat broiler. Remove prawns from marinade and discard any excess. Lightly grease a foil-lined baking sheet and place prawns in a single layer, spaced about 1/2 inch apart.


Broil about 5 minutes or until opaque and cooked, turning over once half-way through.


Toss julienne apples and radishes together with a small amount of the vinaigrette.


Divide the baby greens on serving plates and pile a small amount of the dressed apple-radish mix on top. Garnish with 3 to 4 grilled prawns.


Drizzle salad and plate with remaining vinaigrette and toasted pine nuts.
