This is a very easy Thai salad to make as the Thai Yum, Pla Grapong uses canned fish. We used Mackerel fillets in tomato sauce but you could also use Sardines in tomato sauce for this Thai Salad. As with most Thai salads, this is quite a spicy dish but the rich tomato sauce helps to counteract the chillies.
