Chicken Banana Blossom Salad Preparation
Coarsely chop lemongrass, ginger and scallions. Mix with chili paste, lime juice and palm sugar for marinade. Add chicken and mix thoroughly. Leave for a minimum of 1 hour, but preferably overnight in refrigerator.
In a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon peanut oil. Stir fry chicken for about 10 minutes until cooked through. Add coconut milk and honey. Stir to combine. Let cool.
While chicken is cooling, prepare the vegetables, fruit and herbs for the salad.
Once chicken is cool, toss with all the vegetables, fruit and herbs. Add salt to taste.
Deep fry shrimp crackers in peanut oil.
To serve, place salad in banana flower leaf. Garnish with herbs and toasted sesame seeds. Serve with shrimp crackers.
It is best if the salad is left for a few hours for flavors to develop, before serving. This salad can be eaten at room temperature or cold.

The longer you marinate, the better it will taste. When the salad is done, leave in refrigerator for at least an hour, but best if made the day before ready to serve. [I posted this recipe.]
