  • Process lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, shallot, garlic and chilli in a food processor until finely chopped. Add sugar, fish sauce, soy sauce and lime juice, and process to combine. Tip mixture into a zip-lock bag, add chicken thighs, seal and massage well through the bag to coat chicken. Marinate in the fridge for 1-2 hours or overnight for deeper flavour.
  • 02
  • For green mango salad, pound chilli, garlic and coconut sugar with a mortar and pestle to a smooth paste. Add fish sauce, lime juice, vinegar and 2 tbsp warm water, then taste and adjust flavour as necessary (the dressing should taste hot, sour, sweet and salty). Transfer to a large bowl and pound julienned mango in a mortar and pestle to tenderise, then add to dressing. Crush tomatoes with a mortar and pestle, add to mango with shallots then, just before serving, add herbs, toss to combine and scatter with fried shallots.
  • 03
  • Preheat a barbecue or char-grill pan over high heat. Drain chicken from marinade, drizzle with oil and barbecue, turning often, until browned and cooked through (15-20 minutes). Serve hot with green mango salad.

Note Coconut sugar is available from select delicatessens and health-food shops.
