Tropical Shrimp Salad With Special Thai Sauce

I originally posted this on March 28, 2010 in YadaYadaYada.

Easy peasy salad dish :) It’s also perfect coz the fruits are in season during summer.

Ingredients:

Strawberries

Ripe Mangoes

Shrimps

For the sauce:

1 tbsp. red wine vinegar

1 tbsp. fish sauce

1 tbsp. water

1 tbsp. sugar

1 pc. kalamansi or 1 tbsp. lemon

1 pc. sili labuyo

This is so easy to make :)

Slice the strawberries. Dice the mangoes. Boil the shrimps, remove the shells, keep the meat. Set the ingredients aside. You can also add other fruits that are in season. Dragonfruit (if you find one) will be a nice addition (flavor and color).

For the sauce, just mix the red wine vinegar, fish sauce, water, sugar, and lemon/kalamansi. Adjust depending on which taste you’d like to highlight (i.e., add more sugar if you want it sweet, more vinegar if you want it sour, or the fish sauce if you want it salty). In my case, I observed the 1:1 proportion :P Add  as many siling labuyo or chili as you like. You can also add chopped nuts on the sauce.

Arrange the fruits in your plate and serve with the sauce on a separate container.

Surprise your family and friends with this very simple yet very delish salad! :)
