3 ripe mangoes, chopped
2 long red chillies, chopped
4 spring onions, sliced

Place mango, chillies, spring onions, eschalots, coriander, mint, 80ml vinegar and 80ml oil in a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer half the salsa to a bowl and set aside. Place remaining salsa in processor and process with remaining 2 tbs oil and 2 tbs vinegar until smooth. Pour over prawns. Toss to coat.
