"It may take some effort to peel pomelo, but I love the mildly sweet flesh. It's so much better than grapefruit, in my opinion! I was inspired to try it in a Thai-style salad that was a little sweet and a little sour with hints of spice and funk. Enjoy!"

  1. Cook and stir coconut in a dry skillet over medium-low heat until toasted and fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Cut top and bottom off the pomelo, about 1/2 inch from each side. Make vertical cuts around the fruit, about 1/2 inch into the rind. Pull off slices of rind. Pull off any thick pieces of membrane. Split fruit open and separate into segments. Peel membrane off each slice.
  3. Place pomelo slices in a shallow bowl. Sprinkle toasted coconut, peanuts, shallots, and mint on top.
  4. Combine hot water and palm sugar in a jar. Stir until sugar dissolves. Whisk in lime juice, fish sauce, and chile pepper. Spoon dressing over salad.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Thai bird's eye chiles can be really spicy. Adjust the amount of chile to taste.
  • Substitute light brown sugar for the palm sugar if preferred.
  • Fried shallots are available at Asian grocery stores. You can make your own by heating 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a small saucepan. Add 1/2 shallot, thinly sliced. Fry until browned and crisp, about 10 minutes. Watch carefully that they do not burn. Drain well before using.
