Good morning everyone... As a newbie here I hope you enjoy my posts on this site. I am very excited to be able to share with you my travels and recipes from around the world. Thank you trendingstories for inviting me I am loving it! 

My next recipe for those of you who love fish is a Thai Squid Salad. This is one of the very first Thai dishes I was shown how to make  and a favorite with my grandson and for me who had only ever had the dreaded rubbery battered squid, a revelation and a converted eater of squid whether it be in a salad or curried which is also very yum..... but not for the faint hearted..it is hot!

Ingredients:

6 small baby squid, cleaned and sliced in 1/4 in strips.

2 birds eye chillies, sliced.

3 shallots sliced.

10 cherry Tomatoes, quartered.

Bunch coriander chopped, I use stalks as well as love the taste of coriander.

1-2 tbsp Fish Sauce.

Juice of half Lime.

Method:

Cook squid in boiling water for 1 to 1 half mins (too long and it will be rubbery)

Remove from water. Add chopped tomatoes, chillies, shallots and coriander.

Mix gently to combine.

Add fish sauce and Lime juice and Taste and taste again..if more fish sauce or lime juice required then add a little at a time and taste. I use quite a lot od fish sauce and lime but this is not to everyone’s taste so I can’t say it often enough “taste” and if more is req add.
