Mango Salad (Kerabu Mangga)

I recalled the last time I ate Kerabu mango that was more then 2 years ago,when I visited my mom in Malaysia.My mom used her own home grown apple's mango to make this delicious appetizer for me..Sadly I can't find apple's mango here in U S and A.The only green mango I found here is not really raw green or creamy like apple's mango which is abundant in Asian countries.Anyway,the mango I bought only look green on the skin but have slightly sweetness taste with light yellow flesh on the ripe side...I used my mom recipe but tweak slightly to make this mango salad..I know many recipe out there used fish sauce and peanut but I just want to try using lime and fried anchovies as the main seasoning ingredients to create this Kerabu.I think the flavor or seasoning of kerabu is distinctive interesting and exotic especially using mango as salad ! One word,this mango salad is heavenly deliciously..!!


1 large green mango,peeled and shredded,about 1 pound
100 gm fried anchovies(Ikan bilis goreng),coarsely mashed
1 tbsp sugar
1 large lime,squeezed
3-4 bird's chili,chopped
1 red long chili,finely chopped
1 stalk cilantro,washed and chopped

1:Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl,toss well.(Do not add salt since anchovies is salty).Check the seasoning..Chill in fridge for an hours before serve cold as appetizer or salad.

This sounds really good. I have been keeping an eye out for easy lunch add-ons for my husband and this would be perfect to throw in with his lunch.
