Thai Seafood Salad, 'Yum Talay'

Chili BowlBuy ingredients for this recipe!

Yum means mixture of different flavors, often associated with a salad, talay means seafood. This mixed seafood salad, Thai-style, is a winner. It can be made with any combination of seafood you have on hand, and for greens we like it served on a bed of iceberg lettuce along with seasonal vegetables.


6 or 8 large shrimp, shelled and deveined
2 cups squid, prefer tubes, cut into rings
4 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon (or more for higher heat) ground Thai chili
4 tablespoons fish stock, or chicken stock
2 1/2 teaspoons sugar
4 tablespoons fish sauce
6 or 8 kaffir lime leaves, shredded
3 tablespoons chopped shallots
2 tablespoons white onion, chopped
2 tablespoons coriander leaf, chopped


Mix the non-seafood ingredients in a saucepan, and bring to a gentle simmer. Add the seafood and stir occasionally until the seafood is just cooked. Pour it onto the bed of lettuce, and garnish with seasonal greens such as cucumber, asparagus, and cilantro.
