This dish is based on a Thai green papaya salad. Green papaya salads are up there with the most iconic salads of the world such as the Caesar, insalata caprese and salad Niçoise. I wanted to create a Thai-influenced dish, and this one draws on my days at Longrain, one of Sydney’s most iconic Thai restaurants. Thai food really blends well with ceviche dishes. Together, they provide balance and strength. This salad is like ceviche on steroids. The texture of the raw fish, the cooling papaya and the crunch of the tostada works really well. The creaminess of the guacamole completes this dish and rounds out the palate.
