DIRECTIONS

  • Wash the shrimp with salted cold water.
  • Drain and set aside.
  • Boil water in a medium sauce pan.
  • When the water begins to boil put the piece of pork in the sauce pan and simmer over medium heat for at least 30 minutes until cooked through.
  • Drain and set aside.
  • When it's cool, julienne cut into long thin 2-inch strips.
  • In another sauce pan, boil water.
  • When the water is boiling, put the shrimp in and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Drain the shrimp, split in half and set aside.
  • Soak the shredded green papaya in a large bowl of cold water with 1 teaspoon of salt.
  • Let it sit for 10 minutes; then rinse and drain it well.
  • Use a cheesecloth to squeeze out the water from the shredded papaya.
  • Add pork, shrimp (save a few shrimp to decorate the top of salad), fish sauce dip, and toss.
  • To make fish sauce dip simply combine the ingreidents listed and mix well.
  • To serve: Put the salad on a plate and arrange the cooked shrimp on top, sprinkle the top with coriander, and basil or mint, and chopped peanuts.
  • Guests can use shrimp crackers to scoop up the salad to eat.
  • A second method of serving: use finely shredded beef jerky instead of pork and shrimp.
  • The rest of the preparations are the same.
