Notes

It’s important to keep tasting when cooking Thai food. You need to find the right balance between hot, sweet, sour and salt. Easily balance the dish by adding either Blue Dragon Fish Sauce, sugar, lime/lemon or chillies/ ground pepper. If you want to serve this as a cold salad, slice the chicken and leave to cool completely before adding to the salad. For more information about shallots, visit www.ukshallot.com
