Calamari and green mango salad


You'll need

400 gm cleaned calamari (about 550gm uncleaned) 2 green mangoes, thinly shredded on a mandolin 5 red shallots, thinly sliced 2 cups (loosely packed) each coarsely torn mint and coriander To serve: lime wedges   Lime dressing 2 coriander roots, scraped 5 gm (2.5cm) piece of galangal, thinly sliced 2 birdseye chillies, coarsely chopped 1 garlic clove, coarsely chopped 1 long red chilli, seeds removed, coarsely chopped 60 ml lime juice, or to taste 30 gm palm sugar, or to taste 30 ml fish sauce, or to taste

Method

  • 01
  • Open out calamari, then cut into 5cm pieces and score flesh on inside in a crosshatch pattern. Pat dry with absorbent paper and refrigerate until required.
