Dragonfruit Shrimps - ' Udang Buah Naga '

I was browsing through my colleague’s food magazine ‘ Rasa ’ the February issue and I came across this recipe which intrigued me to try it out. I find it light and refreshing after those heavy meat stuff we took during the recent festive season. It is called ‘ Udang Buah Naga ’ in our local language, translated it meant ‘ Dragonfruit Shrimps ’ :) savoury yet has a natural fruit sweetness from the dragonfruit. Knowing me I will never let this pass without trying it out and I was glad I tried it out. A healthy & savoury salad-like dish. A new dish to start the Ox-picious year :)))

The recipe does not have Japanese cucumber and button mushrooms, I added them coz I have some left-overs in the fridge. I gave it a tweak and added those to the dish :) . It somehow gave the dish a colorful look. I love it and Piggy gal loves it too but not the guys in the family. Daddy is not adventurous at all . He said he prefers the dragonfruit taken as a fruit and not as a veg dish :( Piggy boy not keen at all but he ate some so as not to offend me, I guess :P
