Mango Salad Fish

Old Chinese peoples believe if you see mango (I think they mean unripe mango), if you are not salivating, then you will change to ugly look !! I heard this when I was young, did you hear this kind of old believe before?

Recipe adapted from Flavours food magazine...

Mango Salad Fish

1 whole fish ( I use Siakap fish), rubbed with salt

For the salad

2 unripe mango, cut into long thin strips
1 small carrot, cut into long thin strips
3tbsp dried shrimps, soaked and fried lightly
½ cup peanuts, roasted and roughly chopped
3 shallots, sliced thinly
2 stalks basil (selasih) leaves
3 stalks coriander leaves
1 fresh red chili, sliced thinly
**bird’s eye chili (optional, kids couldn’t take spicy, so I didn’t add in)

Dressing ingredients

3 tbsp sugar or to taste
2 tbsp fish sauce (nam pla) or to taste
3 tbsp lime juice or to taste

1. Heat oil in a wok to deep fry the fish until golden and crispy.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine all salad ingredients and toss well with the dressing ingredients.
3. Refrigerate until ready to use, if not serving immediately
4. Place the fried fish on a serving plate and top with mango salad. Enjoy !!
