Green papaya salad

Nice little surprise this. Basically a cold, crunchy thai salad. I think my dad is starting to get adventurous with his cooking! Get yourself down to Akrams for the papaya.

Ingredients:
  • 1 small green papaya, OR 1/2 large (your papaya should be very firm, the flesh white to light orange in color)
  • 1/2 cup honey-roasted peanuts OR plain roasted, or glazed cashews.
  • 1-2 cups bean sprouts
  • 1 to 2 tomatoes, cut into long thin strips
  • 1 red chili, minced (seeds removed if you prefer a milder salad)
  • 3 spring onions, sliced into long matchstick-like pieces
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, roughly chopped if leaves are large
Method:
  • handful of fresh coriander
  • DRESSING:
  • 1/2 tsp. shrimp paste
  • 2 Tbsp. good-tasting oil, such as olive
  • 2 Tbsp. fish sauce OR 2+1/2 Tbsp. soy sauce for vegetarians
  • 3 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1/2 to 1 Tbsp. liquid honey, to taste
