It's a healthy warm starter or could be for main course with nice spiced grilled ocean fresh king prawn, combine well with sweetness from carrot reduction, infused with lime leaf and lemon-grass.
First introduced for SPA menu as delicious and tasty meal, as normally peoples thought that healthy dishes are always plain and not interesting.
