Isan Liver Salad ( Tub Wan )


A spicy salad made from liver, it's cheap Isan (North East Thailand) peasant food. Yesterday I made deep fried cheese sacks and today I need to balance that with healthier, simpler foods from my home region. Just because it's healthy doesn't mean it isn't tasty!

Ingredients 2 People
50 gms Pork Liver
300 ml Water
1 Tablespoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Chopped Bird Chillies
1 Tablespoon Chopped Red Onions
2 Kaffir Citrus Leaves
1 Tablespoon Chopped Spring Onion
1 Tablespoon Chopped Coriander Leaves
10 gms Mint Leaves
1 Teaspoon Flaked Chillies
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
3 Tablespoons Fish Sauce
4 Garlic Cloves

1. Peel and chop the garlic, then put into the water together with the sale and boil.
2. When the water is boiling slice the pork liver thinly and put into the boiling water for 5 minutes. Remove and place in a serving bowl.
3. Add the chilli, red onion, spring onion, coriander, flaked chilli, lemon juice and fish sauce and mix in the bowl.
4. Sliced the kaffir leaves finely, and add to the bowl, together with the mint leaves.

Serve With
Sticky Rice
Green Bean
