50 g jellyfish, cleaned and thinly sliced

180 g white radish

180 g carrot

180 g pomelo, peeled and sacs separated

180 g pickled cucumber

180 g pickled papaya

110 g plum sauce

32 ml peanut oil



120 g roasted peanuts, chopped

120 g roasted sesame seeds



1. To prepare white radish: peel and soak in water for an hour, then shred. Soak for about 10 minutes in water, again, to remove the smell then squeeze dry.

2. To prepare carrots: peel and soak in water for an hour, then shred. Do not soak shredded carrots – squeeze dry.

3. To prepare sauce: mix together plum sauce and peanut oil.

4. Arrange all ingredients on a plate. Garnish with the remaining roasted peanuts (chopped) and roasted sesame seeds, then serve with sauce drizzled over.
