This is a spicy Thai 'salad' that is served as part of the main meal. You can adjust the chili to suit your taste. You might be able to use grapefruit in place of pomelo, but you will probably want to increase the sugar and decrease the lime juice to counteract the tarter taste of grapefruit.
|Dried prawns||3 Tbsp||finely ground|
|Toasted coconut||3 Tbsp|
|Shallots||2 large bulbs||sliced|
|Lime juice||2 Tbsp|
|Palm sugar||1 Tbsp|
|Mouse dropping chilies||5||mashed|
Mix together the lime juice, palm sugar, salt and chillies to create the dressing.
Mix the pomelo, ground dried prawns, coconut and shallots together. The pomelo will break up easily, but shouldn't be mashed. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with some sweet basil or lettuce.
