1 tsp tahini paste
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp light soy
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp olive oil
Half lime juice
2 tsp fish sauce
30 ml coconut cream
1 tbsp red Thai curry paste
1 tsp fish sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce
Cucumber sliced thinly
Shredded red cabbage
Sliced red peppers
For the first step, you will have to marinate the chicken thighs in coconut cream, red Thai curry paste, fish sauce and soy sauce for a minimum of two hours. Once you think that the flavour has seeped in the chicken, it is time to grill it.
While your chicken is being cooked, you can cut the vegetables including the lettuce, cucumber, radish, red cabbage and red peppers and place them all on a plate. Once the chicken breasts are done, cut them into smaller pieces and keep them with the salad vegetables.
Make the salad dressing by mixing the tahini paste, peanut butter, soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, olive oil, lime juice and fish sauce nicely and generously pour it on the salad and give everything a nice toss. For the final touch, add ground peanuts, white sesame seeds and coriander to garnish the salad and your flavourful masterpiece is ready to be consumed.
