For the Dressing:
1 large shallot, peeled and sliced
1 red chile, finely chopped
Grated zest and juice of 1 lime
4 tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp mirin
2 tsp Thai fish sauce
2 tsp honey
For the Salad:
12 oz. raw shrimp (or you can use cooked to save time)
1 tbsp oil
2 papayas, peeled and sliced
1 cup finely sliced radishes
3 lettuce hearts, cut into quarters
Large handful cilantro leaves, chopped
Large handful mint leaves, chopped
How to Make It
Mix all the dressing ingredients together until combined, and set aside.
Heat a frying pan or grill over medium-high heat. Toss the shrimp in the oil, and cook until they are pink throughout. (At this stage, you could leave the shrimp in the dressing until you're ready to assemble the salad.)
In a large bowl, mix the papaya slices, radishes, lettuce and herbs. Toss in the shrimp, and drizzle over the dressing.
