Marrow gets the modern treatment in this mouth-watering fusion-inspired salad from Tom Norrington-Davis


1. Heat the oil in a wok and fry the prawns. When they are just cooked, add the mackerel and cook for a couple of minutes to warm through. Remove the fish from the pan and set aside.

2. Peel and grate the marrow. Sprinkle it with a little salt and set aside.

3. Crush the peanuts in a pestle and mortar to make a fine rubble.

4. To make the dressing, combine the peanuts with the fish sauce, chilli, lime juice, garlic and sugar.

5. Squeeze any moisture from the marrow flesh and toss the marrow, radish, prawns and mackerel with the dressing.

6. Garnish with sprigs of tarragon and coriander before serving.

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 12 shelled cold water prawns
