Burmese chicken salad from Food52
When I saw this salad recipe on Food52 I had no idea what Burmese food means. I searched for it and understood these things, please correct me, if I am wrong:
- Most of the times it goes with some fish sauce
- There must be something fried in it
- There has to be chili in it.
- It is always crispy, crunchy and saucy at the same time.
The Burmese salads are (from my point of view) something really interesting- between salad and warm dish. So I think they could replace lunch and dinner perfectly. Especially when there is meat in the salad, you got it! No need to cook for tonight! 🙂
Now something about the website Food52. The cool thing about it is that many authors share their recipes there. This particular Burmese chicken salad I took from the author Giao Chau.
The salad recipe is really easy, anyone can copy it. If you don’t like cooked shallots, like me, you could replace them with something else. Below the recipe summary I will share my ideas with you.
You can read the full recipe on the Food52 website. This photo is also their property.
As I said earlier, not everybody is a fan of fried shallots. I just don’t like the smell, although I know lots of people adore it. I would replace this ingredient with:
- fried summer squash
- fried carrots, very thinly sliced
- fried vermicelli
