Yam Taeng Gwaa Thale – Sweet and sour cucumber salad with seafood

IMG_0182For today’s lunch I ordered a yam, a spicy  Thai salad. There are hundreds of different yams but what they have all in common is a sweet, sour and spicy taste similar to the famous somtum. I ordered a cucumber yam, which is called yam taeng gwaa with seafood. Thale means sea, thus the menu’s name is yam taeng gwaa thale. The sea food consisted of squid and fish. To the sliced cucumber stripes were added sliced carrots and parsley.
