Recipe Ingredients for Pomelo Salad / YAM SOM-O / Salada Tailandesa de Pomelo

1 1/2 lb grapefruit, peeled and separated into segments
1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
3/4 cup coconut flakes (unsweetened)
1/2 cup coconut milk
4 tablespoons finely-minced shallots or onion
2 tablespoon garlic
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup roasted peanuts, roughly chopped
1 Fresh lime juice, to taste
1 Fish sauce, to taste
1/5 cup cilantro leaves

Recipe Directions for Pomelo Salad / YAM SOM-O / Salada Tailandesa de Pomelo

  1. In a small saucepan, sauté together the vegetable oil, shallots, garlic, and dried pepper flakes over medium heat until the mixture releases its wonderful aroma and becomes confit-like in consistency. Add the coconut milk into the shallot mixture and heat through; remove from heat and set aside to cool.

  2. In a skillet over medium-low heat, dry toast the desiccated coconut flakes until they turn medium brown color. Be careful not to leave the skillet unattended; coconut burns very easily. Set the toasted coconut aside to cool.

  3. Poach the shrimp, drain, and set it aside.

  4. Gently break up the pomelo segments into roughly ˝-inch pieces and put them in a large mixing bowl.

  5. Add the poached shrimp, shallot-coconut mixture, toasted coconut flakes, peanuts, and cilantro leaves to the pomelo bowl.

  6. Add to the mixing bowl 2 tablespoons each of the lime juice and fish sauce and toss everything together as gently as you can with your hands. Adjust the seasoning with more lime juice or fish sauce as needed. (If your pomelo is on the tart side, you may want to add just a tiny bit of sugar to counteract the acidity. But usually the subtle, natural sweetness of the toasted coconut and coconut milk is sufficient.)

  7. Serve immediately with additional roasted peanuts and toasted coconut on top, if desired
