Warm salmon, thinly-sliced onions, tomatoes and basil are tossed with a spicy Thai-inspired salad dressing.
This is a very pretty dish. The dressing was light yet very flavorful. Truely a wonderful summer dish. - 24 Aug 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Beware, you must LOVE basil! I was also a little worried about using Fishsauce in a salad, because it is quite strong in smell and taste. But the combination of fishsauce, lime juice and sugar was quite good and I eagerly looked forward to the finished dish. And then I added the fresh Thai Basil which I have growing in my garden. It nearly ruined the whole dish for me because in that quantity it was just too overbearing! I will do this recipe again, but instead of basil, I think I'll add some green onions or maybe just a hint of basil. Oh yeah, be sure your onions are mild as well - mine weren't. I also used quite a bit of fresh cayenne peppers and was surprised that they weren't hot. Maybe the lime juice obscured their "bite". - 25 Aug 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
