I really love this salad that can be bought along d streets of Bangkok for only THB25. In fact, it’s so good that I have it almost every day for lunch after my Hot Yoga session.
The balance of fish sauce, lime juice, sugar & salt listed here are guidelines. Thai salad is an individual dish that you will find you might like with more of any 1 ingredient than what the recipe calls for.
- 2 cups jelly fish, shredded
- 1 tsp sugar
- ¼ tsp salt
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- ¼ cup Scallion
- ¼ cup ginger, sliced into thin slices
- ½ cup peanuts, toasted
- 1-2 tbsp fish sauce
- dried peppers flakes, optional
Cut jelly fish into shreds, soak in water for 2 hour, take them out, soak in warm water for 4 hours & shift into ice water. Before eating, take them out, squeeze water out & place on a plate. You can also microwave the jelly fish for 30 seconds be4 adding them to the salad to kill any residual bacteria.
Just put them all into a mixing bowl & mix them well. They r usually wrap in either lettuce, basil, or betel leaves be4 putting into 1’s mouth.
Optional - for a vegetarian, omit jelly fish & substitute soy sauce for fish sauce. You can also replace jelly fish with dried shrimp. Some also prefer tamarind in place of lemon juice.
