1 tablespoon light brown sugar

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

1/4 cup Thai fish sauce

grilledshrim21 tablespoon chopped mint

1 tablespoon chopped cilantro stems

½ White radish (daikon or mooli), very finely julienne (sliced)



1 green papaya, julienned

1 green mango, julienned

1/2 jicama, julienned

1 carrot, julienned

1/2 cup chopped peanuts

Fresh mint, roughly chopped

Fresh cilantro, roughly chopped

1 thai bird chile, sliced (optional)

12 Italian basil



16 jumbo shrimp

salt and pepper

Wooden skewers



Finely julienne the papaya and toss with the finely julienne (sliced) green onions (scallions), white radish, chopped fresh herbs and garlic. Toss together in a large bowl.

In a small bowl, whisk all the ingredients of the dressing together and set aside.

If the sauce is a little too acidic, add a little extra water as required to dilute the flavour to your taste. Continue whisking until the dressing is well mixed.

While the shrimp are grilling pour the dressing over the salad and toss together. Dress on a platter and generously sprinkle with the chopped peanuts. Let’s try our Green Papaya and Mango Salad !
