Mango & Coriander Spicy Kerabu Salad

This refreshing salad is based on the Thai Som Tum Mamuang (Thai Green Mango Salad) and the very much-loved Kerabu Mangga recipe that Makmah makes. I love mangoes, but the quality of mangoes I can find here in Greece at times disappoint me. They ripen into hard, sour fruits and I find that they are perfect for savoury salads like this kerabu or made into purée/sauce (to be eaten with ice cream, yum!)

I also love coriander (cilantro). They go really well with this salad, with the kaffir lime leaves and juice, peanuts, fish sauce and kerisik makes this into a very fragrant and appetizing salad. Different brands of fish sauce have different levels of saltiness, so vary accordingly. Be safe, use 1 tbsp first, taste and add more fish sauce/soy sauce if you think it needs more.

  1. […] In a dry pan, add the coconut. Turn on the heat on low, and slowly toast the coconut until it turns golden brown. Try not to burn it. You will start to smell the heavenly scent of coconut in your kitchen. Once brown, leave it to cool. In a lesung (pestle and mortar), pound the coconut into a paste to release the oils. You can also use a spice grinder to grind the coconut into a paste. It’s now ready to use. Recipes that use Kerisik here in Airinie’s Eclectic Kitchen: Pah‘s Chicken Rendang. Pah‘s Rendang Tok.
