Mango Salad with Dried Shrimp or Dried fish

Mango Salad with Dried Shrimp or Dried fish

This salad is basic you can add any dried fish, fry catfish, dried squid, or dried shrimps. Thai and Cambodian make this salad often during the mango season.

1 big green mango (shredded)
2 clove garlic minced
2 shallots sliced thin
1/3 cup dried shrimps soaked wash (you can use dried fish, or fry cat fish is best)
1 small shredded carrot
1 to 2 T sugar (if the mango is sweet don’t put it)
2 T fish sauce
2 T roasted coconut flake (optional)
3 Thai chilies minced
1 lime juice
Mints, cilantro, or herbs for garnish

In a big bowl combine all the ingredients together, mix well add mints or herbs before serving.
If you use cat fish it is best to fry with oil first to make it crispy then break it apart to smaller pieces then mix with the mango salad.

Adjust the flavor to your taste.
