Green Papaya Salad  Recipe


  1. Submerge the shrimp in hot water for 20 minutes, then drain and set aside.
  2. While the shrimp soak, prepare the sauce and papaya. Combine the sauce ingredients in a blender; blend until smooth, then set aside. Cut the papaya in half crosswise, then peel off its skin. Using a julienne peeler or cheese grater, cut the papaya into 3-inch-long strips.
  3. Place the green beans in a large mixing bowl, then bruise with a large spoon or ladle to release their juices. Add the papaya, cherry tomatoes, half of the macadamia nuts, soaked shrimp, and sauce and toss until well mixed.
  4. Taste and add salt if needed. Serve topped with the remaining macadamia nuts.
