AT A GLANCE
This is a no-cook dish that's easy to prepare, packed with flavour and ideal for sharing.
|01||Place papaya in a bowl of iced water to soak and crisp (20-30 minutes), then drain and refrigerate until required.|
|02||Pound sugar, garlic and chilli to a coarse paste with a large mortar and pestle, add shrimp and pound to combine. Add cherry tomatoes, coarsely crush, then add fish sauce and lime juice, and stir to combine. Add papaya to mortar and pestle, pound and toss to wilt slightly, then stir in beans. Check balance of flavours – it should taste hot, sour, sweet and salty; adjust with extra chilli, lime juice, palm sugar or fish sauce to taste.|
|03||To serve, arrange mahi mahi slices on a serving platter with papaya salad and lime wedges, and scatter with fried shallots.|
Note Dried shrimp is available at Asian grocers.
