Freshly-baked salmon is chunked in a bowl with thinly-sliced onions, tomatoes, and chopped, fresh basil. And if this isn't glorious enough, a fragrant, hot and spicy dressing is folded in. Serves six.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 4 tablespoons fish sauce
- 4 tablespoons lime juice
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- 4 Thai chiles, chopped
- 1 1/2 pounds salmon fillet
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 1 large tomato, chopped
- 1 cup chopped fresh basil
- 1 head lettuce
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Prepare the dressing by combining the fish sauce, lime juice, brown sugar and chopped chiles in a small bowl; set aside.
Place the salmon filet on a baking tray, and rub olive oil over. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until easily flaked. Let cool for at least 15 minutes.
Place salmon filet into a big bowl; use fork to break salmon meat into big chunks. Add onion, tomato and basil; pour dressing over, and toss lightly until well mixed.
Place mixture on lettuce leaves, and serve immediately.
