Chilli Squid & Shredded Daikon Salad
This salad is palate-cleansing and refreshing. A little spicy, a little tart that pairs nicely with our chilli squid. The chilli squid has a 'kick' and the daikon salad provides a great counter to the heat of the squid. Prepare the salad prior to service, store in the refrigerator up to 24 hours. The squid takes just minutes to deep fry so the dish can be served within minutes of taking the order.
Note: The thinner you slice the daikon, the better it will absorb the flavor of the dressing.
This recipe is for 6 servings.
