Spicy Seafood Salad

Yam Ruam Mitr Talay

Because of its proximity to the sea and lengthy coastlines, Thailand's cuisine has an abundance of seafood dishes. For versatility we have used a frozen seafood medley easily available in many supermarkets. The dressing can be made in advance and refrigerated until required.


  • 400 g seafood medley
  • 1 tbsp red onion (finely diced)
  • 8 mint leaves (finely shredded)
  • 1 heaped tbsp fresh coriander (chopped)


  • 1 clove garlic (finely chopped)
  • 3-4 bird's eye chillies (finely chopped)
  • 1 tbsp Mai Siam Fish Sauce
  • 2 tbsp limejuice
  • 1 Tbsp Mai Siam Palm?Sugar
  • Combine all the above ingredients and place in a screw top jar in refrigerator until required.
  • If frozen, allow seafood medley to defrost overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Drain seafood before placing in a glass-mixing bowl.
  • Add dressing, mix well and serve immediately.
