Thailand is one of the most beautiful places I've visited. I just can't stop going back. The scenery, the people, and the food, especially the food! Thai cuisine is so deliciously healthy. It tastes fresh and has what I call 'clean' flavours.
This Thai salmon salad is no exception. The combination of a little fish sauce and brown sugar gives a lovely sweet yet salty taste. The flavours are distinct, but blend well, while the coriander gives it a beautiful fragrance. It's very healthy which is great for the waistline and contains lots of Omega 3. It's a meal in itself, and the best part is that it is so easy to prepare.
I take a salad to work every day for lunch. But I've never taken this one – it's so good that there are never any leftovers. I like to close my eyes when I eat it and savour the smell and taste, and dream about my next trip to a gorgeous Thai beach.
