Vietnamese Green Mango and Shrimp Salad

by -

Inspired by my recent visit to Vietnam and the variety of fresh foods on offer, one of my favourites was this crunchy flavoursome, sweet, sour and salty green mango salad. Don’t worry about sourcing green mango’s, just use a mango that isn’t ripe from supermarkets.

 

Ingredients

 

    1 large unripened mango (about 1.5 pounds with the seed), julienned – or grated

    1 carrot (mainly for color), julienned

    1 cup mooli or white radish, julienned

    1 cucumber, seeded and julienned

    225g medium shrimps/prawns - raw

    red onion, raw and thinly sliced (optional)

    Herbs & Garnish (all optional)

    deep fried shallots – grated shallots quickly fried in a little oil - delicious

    roasted peanuts, crushed

    mint, thai basil, coriander, stems removed and roughly chopped

 

Dressing:

 

    75mls fish sauce

    75 mls lime juice

    75 mls water

    sliced Thai chilies – optional depending on how spicy you like it

Instructions

  • Prepare the mango and veggies.
  • Peel mangoes and veggies.
  • Remove seeds from cucumber and mango, then julienne everything.
  • Make a quick pickle.
  • If you don't already have pickled mooli and carrots ready, make a quick pickle. Mix equal parts water, vinegar, and sugar in a large bowl, enough to cover the veggies.
  • Add carrots and mooli  to the bowl for 40 minutes.
  • Add cucumbers to the bowl for the last 20 minutes. Drain when ready to mix the salad.
  • Prepare the shrimps/prawns
  • Bring a pot of water with 1 tsp salt to a boil on high heat.
  • Add shrimps/prawns until they turn slightly pink, then drain and put over ice to prevent it from cooking further.
  • Toss & garnish
  • Mix ingredients for the salad dressing.
  • Mix all ingredients, add dressing to taste, and serve and enjoy immediately.

  • "I was very run down, lacked energy and was finding it very difficult to control my weight when I first consulted with Andrea.  We talked through my issues very thoroughly during the first consultation and Andrea recommended that I take an adrenal fatigue test.  This highlighted that I had an abnormal cortisol pattern throughout the day and was affecting my energy and appetite - I had intense sugar cravings from mid afternoon onwards.  On the back of the results of this test, Andrea recommended a new diet and a course of supplements to restore normal cortisol levels and revive my tired adrenals. I now have more energy and do not have the same urges for sugar during the afternoons. I am also sleeping much better now as well.  I am also sleeping much better now too (after 5 years of 2am waking!).  "Elizabeth
