Green mango salad

mangoes at the backyard

Was wondering what to cook one evening when these mangoes hanging on the tree caught my eyes!! Recalled a Thai dish of mango salad and I have all the ingredients needed. Not going to wait for the mangoes to ripen I guess....

Mango salad with fish

Recipe: Green mango salad

4-5 green mango, peeled and shredded
1-2 shallots, sliced finely
2-5 chilli padi (birdseye chillies), crushed
Sprigs of coriander, chopped roughly

1 tbsp. lime juice - optional (I added because our mangoes were not very sour)

2 tbsp. fish sauce
2 tbsp. sugar

1 tbsp. roasted unsalted peanuts (coarsely chopped) - to garnish

Mix all ingredient together and leave in the fridge to chill. Garnish with peanuts to serve (I forgot to garnish - that's why you can't find any peanuts in the pic!)

Served it with fish fillet-- deep-fried with simple coating of salt, pepper and cornflour.

Love, Jo

Inspired by u know who!! What sleep?? This is addictive. Have to limit time on the net to two hours a day but that doesn't stop one from thinking about what to blog while driving-'don't blog and drive' (soon-to-be safty slogan). Wasn't too sure whether the blog would last a week - so didn't advertised. Thanks for the encouragement--now can go public!

Remember the old man's restuarant near the house? This recipe(the soy chicken) is adapted from him by ppc. Happy cooking!
