Spicy Dried Squid Salad ( Yum Pa Daw )


This uses the dried squid cut into pieces in a salad. When I visited Holland, all the salads were mayonnaise with chopped vegetables, in Thailand all the salads are chopped vegetables mixed with chillies! Normally a Thai salad would use fish sauce, but the squid in this one provides the salt and fish flavours.

100 gms Dried Squid
1-2 Onions
40 gms Chopped Celery
1-2 Chopped Large Chillies
1-2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
1 Teaspoon Sugar

1. Fry the squid for 1 minute in hot oil, this will crunch it up and help bring out the flavour.
2. Dray it carefully on kitch paper to remove surface oil.
3. Chop it into strips.
4. Mix all the ingredients together, serve.
