Chef Rick's Tips

Make this dish gluten-free by using jicama slices or gluten-free bread instead of a French baguette. Garnish with truffle vinegar to add a rich favor. 

Twist this dish by using a ceviche style recipe instead of steamed prawns. Let raw prawns soak in the juice of a lemon and lime for 30 minutes prior to serving. 

Spice things up by adding chopped cherry peppers to the salad. Serve with a mixed green salad, and garnish with edible flowers.
