Papaya Salad with Shrimp Recipe

Serves 2
½  green mango shredded
½ young green papaya shredded
1 carrot shredded
½ cup fried onions
½ cup peanuts chopped
½ lime
1 cup mint leaves
1tsp smashed fresh ginger
3 tsp sugar (for salad)
100 grams/4 ounces minced shrimp
1 tsp garlic smashed
½ tsp black pepper
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp sugar (for meat)
2 tbsp vegetable oil

Step 1: Mix the garlic, black pepper, salt and sugar into the shrimp. Let sit for 3 minutes.
Step 2: Peel mango, carrot & papaya, then shred, make sure they are green (hard) not ripe. You can use a grater to get the required slices. Try and get the slice thin & long. Set mango & papaya aside. Slice the carrots very thin, cut and peel the onion apart. Set veggies in a bowl to the side.
Step 3: Rinse vegetable shreds. Mix all shreds together in a bowl. Mix in 3 tsp of sugar, 1 tsp ginger, and squeeze ½ lime’s juice. Let sit.
Step 4: Your meat mixture is ready for the pan in a hot pan add the vegetable oil, and the meat mixture, cook until meat is cooked through.
Step 5: Drain papaya/carrot lime mixture.
Step 6: Mix all remaining ingredients (mint, nuts, fried onions) in with the shreds & meat.
Serve with shrimp chips.

Grocery Store Tips:
-Fried onion, back at home the brand French’s makes these.
-Shrimp chips can be found in Asian grocery stores, they look like large puffed chip.

Cheating Tips:
-Some grocery stores may sell green papaya & mango already shredded. If you can’t find a whole green mango/papaya then this is your best option.  Our Asian grocery store sells the shreds for under $2.
-Break out your food processor, if you have a shredding option/attachment bring it on out!

-This dish can easily be served vegetarian, add your meat substitute or no meat and it’s still a hit.

Recipe Origin: Café 43 in Hoi An, Vietnam. Which was our favorite restaurant in all of Hoi An, we spent 6 nights in Hoi An. We ate at Café 43 5 out of 6 days and decided to take a cooking class to get our hands on the recipes for our favorite dishes.

This was one of our favorite things to do in Hoi An!
