Pomelo Salad (Yum Som-O) ยำส้มโอ By Hot Thai Kitchen

Serves 2-3 as an appetizer

1 Tbsp palm sugar (see note)

1½ Tbsp lime juice (see note)

2 tsp fish sauce

Thai chilies, to taste

The Salad:

2 cups Pomelo, torn into chunks (see how to peel a pomelo in the video)

3 Tbsp shredded coconut, dark toasted

2 Tbsp roasted peanuts, coarsely ground

2 Tbsp dried shrimp, blitzed in a blender or coffee grinder until fluffy

3 Tbsp shallots, thinly sliced

2 kaffir lime leaves, very finely julienned

2 inches lemongrass, bottom half only, very thinly sliced

¼ cup mint leaves

1/4 cup cilantro leaves (optional)

Wild betel leaves for serving (optional)

Option: If you want to make the salad a bit more substantial, some people top the salad with some cooked shrimp as well.

Note: The measurements I provided is for a pomelo that is relatively sweet and not very tart. You will need to adjust the dressing measurements according to the sweetness/tartness of the pomelo. If the pomelo is quite tart, use more sugar and less lime juice.

The Meat Platter

You can have as many types of meat as you wish, but I recommend about 150g of protein per person. If using beef, pork, or chicken, use the marinade recipe below. If using seafood, liver or tofu, no need to marinade.

Pick and choose your favourites from these options:

  • Napa cabbage, water spinach, bok choy, spinach or other soup-friendly greens with a mild flavour
  • Carrot ribbons
  • Asian mushrooms such as shimeji, enoki, shiitake, oyster, or king oyster mushrooms
  • Thai basil (must have!)
  • Sawtooth coriander or cilantro stems
  • Chinese celery 
  • Glass noodles or other quick-cooking noodles you like

  • ½  tsp sugar
