Sea Bass with Thai Papaya Salad

I have seen this salad on Youtube and various other places recently and wanted to give it a crack. I have done it with some Seabass but you can use king prawns or any other fish you want. I am sure that once you’ve tried it you’ll use it all the time. It would also be great with chicken or even in a burger.


You will need.

2 Seabass Fillets (per person)

1 Green Papaya

2 Red Chillies

Small Handful of chopped Coriander.

8 Cherry tomatoes

1 Medium Carrot

1 Clove of Garlic

2 Limes

5 Green Beans (sliced)

1 tbs Fish Sauce

1 tbs Light Soy

1 tbs Palm Sugar


  1. Using a mandolin with a tooth blade shred the carrot and the peeled papaya. Then finely dice the chilli, garlic, green beans, coriander and tomatoes.
  2. In a bowl combine the soy, fish sauce, lime juice and palm sugar. Pour over the salad and using your fingers toss until all the salad is coated.
  3. Take your Seabass and season the flesh side with salt. Fry in a medium/high pan on the skin side for 3-4 minutes then turn off the heat and finish on the skin side for a final minute.
  4. Arrange on the plate with some added wedges of lime.
