Noodle King: Tuna Salad
---By Douglas Habecker
Translated by Sho Huang
Shredded carrots and onions; chopped parsley, celery,
garlic, and small red onions; lemon juice; tuna chunks
(canned); peanuts; coconut milk; Thai fish sauce; spicy
oil (red pepper powder mixed with heated salad oil)
Prepare near-equal portions of the above ingredients.
Except for the peanuts, mix all ingredients in a bowl,
with fish sauce and spicy oil added according to your
taste. Before serving, sprinkle peanuts on top.
This salad isn't actually a traditional
Thai dish but, rather, was invented by Thailand Noodle
King restaurant's chefs. Quick and easy to make without
any cooking necessary, this dish packs a punch with
a typical Thai-style explosion of sweet and tangy-sour
flavors. The variety of ingredients also provides an
equally-interesting mix of textures. Enjoy this at home
or at Thai Noodle King (located behind Sogo Department
Store), ideally with a tall, cold glass of coconut milk.
