Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

  • mcvl on June 19, 2013

    Let me confess freely that I did not have any Maldive fish nor any idea how to obtain a reasonable amount (the minimum order from Lexo Cameroon Fish Exporters is 28 tons), so instead I fried some nice Pacific cod crispy in bacon fat and seasoned the salad liberally with fish sauce. It was deeeeeeeelicious.
