Julie's Green Papaya Salad
Why I Love This Recipe
Julie is famous for her 50 Chili Green Papaya Salad that even her family thinks is insanely hot! Here is a 1-2 chili version that Rusty's family still thinks is too hot. A version without any chilies may be all they can handle.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 Green Papaya (A good, fresh green papaya is dark green and firm.)
1 garlic clove
1-2 dried red Thai chilies
4-5 cherry tomatoes, cut in half or quarters
Mushroom seasoning, to taste
1/2 to 1/4 lime
fish sauce, to taste
Regular vegetable peeler
Julienne peeler (if you are not going to shred the papaya in the traditional way)
Mortar and pestle
Using a large mortar and pestle and pound garlic and chilies together.
Add shrimp and crab paste and continue pounding.
Add papaya than add the rest of the ingredients and use a spoon to help mix ingredients together.
Taste and adjust to your taste, its should be sweet, sour, salty and hot.
