The sauce for this is just the basic Thai Papaya Salad dressing-
Feeds 4/6 People
2/3 x Red Chilli -deseeded
2 x Cloves of Garlic
3 x tbsp of Fish Sauce
2 tbsp of Rice Wine Vinegar
2 x Limes-juice (Add once salad is made)
2 x tbsp of Palm Sugar or 1 lrg tbsp of normal caster sugar
5 x Cherry Tomatoes
Muddle all of the above together in a pestle and mortar-
-Add all the hard ingredients first and muddle into a paste then sauces last
Finely Slice/shred all vegetables that you want in your salad- this combination works really well
Red Cabbage & or White Cabbage
Ribbons of Courgette
Pineapple - Add this to the veg just before adding the dressing so it doesn't make the other veg go soggy it's supposed to be a nice crisp salad.
(Papaya, Cucumber, Grapefruit works well too)
Mix the dressing with the salad- the dressing should be a combination of sweet & sour (fish sauce vs palm sugar) with the kick of the chilli and sharpness of the vinegar.
SARDINES-In chilli oil
At 1.35 GBP per tin these sardines in chilli are next level and a bargain. put them under the grill straight from the tin and sprinkle with coriander.
Grill on high until crispy, turn over and do the same on the other side- salt & pepper if you fancy but these are good enough on their own. Should take only a few minutes on each side if you've pre heated your grill.
Pile your salad up high to serve (don't forget the lime) and add the crispy chilli sardines.
SO GOOD!! SERIOUSLY!!
