Green mango, mackerel and peanuts salad, or Yam mamuang pla tu


Mackerel belongs to the daily diet in the Gulf of Thailand. You'll find it fresh or steamed at any local market. It's then grilled or deep-fried to be arranged in many ways : salad, spicy dipping sauce, soup or curry. Give a try to this little-known recipe to enjoy the taste of Koh Samui's local and authentic food.

Serves 2.


2 small mackerels, steamed

1 green mango, peeled and finely shredded

1 teaspoon coconut sugar

2 tablespoons fish sauce

2 tablespoons lime juice

1 fresh bird's eye chilli, finely sliced

2 coriander sprigs, chopped

A dozen mint leaves, roughly chopped

2 tablespoons unsalted peanuts, dry roasted


Grill mackerel 2 to 3 minutes on each side (until the skin starts to change colour). Then remove fillets and mince the flesh.


Mix all the ingredients. Taste to see if any additional seasoning is necessary. Serve with rice noodles.
