Papaya-Banana Blossom-Tako Salad
1 large banana blossom, shredded (about 3 handful of banana blossom)
1 medium sized papaya, shredded
1/2 lb sliced cooked octopus, may add more if interested
Mint leaves, shredded or chopped (add as little or as much as you prefer)
About 1 1/2 Tbsp fish sauce
About 1 1/2 Tbsp brown sugar
Juice from 1 large lemon or lime
Roasted peanuts, chopped or lightly crushed
Chili pepper or Sriracha sauce
In a large bowl (preferably glass) add the blossom, papaya, octopus and mint leaves. Season with fish sauce, sugar and juice of lime or lemon. Mix all ingredients until well blended. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed. Scoop some out onto a plate. Sprinkle with roasted peanuts and chili pepper if interested.
