This Crispy Fish and Green Mango Salad from Bangkok Street Food is a dish that you'll most likely never seen on the menu of your local Thai joint. And it's quite a shame since this intriguing combo of crisp-smoky fried fish served with salty-spicy green mango salad is pretty outrageous. The layers of texture and flavor are all over the place in the best possible way, with the sour dressing working its way into the crunchy little fish cake and the mango salad tying it all together with crunchy veggies and punchy heat.
