This amazing Thai salad, known as Pah Talay, is made with fresh shrimp and squid that has been marinated in lime juice, then blanched for just a bit in boiling water. The result are squid rings that are soft and delicious, and shrimp that are plump and juicy. We toss these together with lots of sliced onion, shallots, lemongrass, green onion, garlic, mint, and cilantro. The base for the salad dressing is Nam Prik Pao, our chili sauce that's made with fire-roasted ingredients and is bursting with rich, earthy, smokey, and sweet flavors. This is not your grandma's seafood salad, and you simply must give it a try.
