Spicy Sardine Salad (Yum Pla Gapong)
Thai food can be overwhelming, with lots of strange ingredients and foreign vegetables. So here we have a very simple and very tasty recipe using sardines! We used sardines in oil, but you can also use sardines in tomato sauce, in which case you don’t need the tomato puré. This should be served with fragrant Thai rice, but can also be served along with salads.
Ingredient for 2 People 2 Cans of Sardines in Oil 2 Teaspoons of Tomato Puré 20 gms Lemon Grass 20 gms Coriander Leaves 50 gms Onion 2 Red Chillis 2 Bird Chillis 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice 1 Tablespoon Fish Sauce
Preparation 1. Remove the sardines from the can. 2. Mix the oil from the can with the tomato puré in a small mixing bowl. 3. Slice the onion, lemon grass, and chilles, and add to the bowl. 4. Add the fish sauce and lemon juice and mix all the ingredients together well. 5. Pour over the sardines. 6. Chop the coriander put around the edge of the sardine plate.
