By Executive Chef Jeff King

Today I will share with you my recipe for a Thai classic, spicy green papaya salad.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic , chopped
  • 1/4 cup roasted peanuts , roughly chopped
  • 1-3 Thai chilies , minced (optional)
  • 3/4 cup roma tomatoes diced
  • 2 cups peeled and shredded green papaya

Combine the fish sauce, lime juice, and brown sugar in a large bowl and stir until the sugar has almost dissolved.

Add the grated garlic, peanuts, and the chilies (if using).

Add the tomatoes pressing down a little bit with a spoon to release some juice.

Finally, add the papaya and toss everything together.

Happy cooking!
