Yesterday, I passed through this street vendor selling hilaw na mangga or green mangoes. I bought a few pieces and thought of making a salad like what I've tried in a thai restaurants: Thai me up and Siam. I searched through the web for recipes and how-to videos in youtube.
I didn't get to find one in particular so I noted the ingredients and bought it at the local market. It's safe to say that I experimented. I could not point out the exact measurements of the liquid ingredients since I was tasting it and just adjusted everything accordingly.
the ingredients (photo searched via google) L-R: green mango, lime, fish sauce
hot pepper, red onion, cooked shrimp
nuts, brown sugar and water
oppss... not in photo: salt and vinegar (optional depending on your taste)
And the outcome? tadad!!! *I think I bought big sized shrimp though. The original recipe required dried shrimps but I would not go with it. haha...
5 pieces green mango: 25.00 pesos
200 grams shrimp: 52.00 pesos
hot pepper: 2.00 pesos
onion: 3.00 pesos
lime: 5.00 pesos
nuts: 10.00 pesos
everything else is found at home. haha.
I spent 97.00 pesos for this. not bad since I've made more than a serving of order at the restaurants whose price is around 150.00 to 200.00 pesos an order :)
