green mango with fish sauce by Sarah Xiong

Quintessential Laos snack. We didn't have candy in the house so this was a rare occassion when we ate sugar. Usually there is roasted rice and a sour fruit but this is the simplest way to make it. It should be perfectly umami.


  • 2 green mangos, sliced
  • Sauce
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp dried pepper flakes or less
  • 1/8 tsp salt


Dump ingredients in a small bowl. Use a mango slice to stir the ingredients together. Eeeaaaaatttt.
