Corn Som Tam with Shrimp

[Photographs: Leela Punyaratabandhu]

Corn Som Tam is one of Bangkokians' favorite variations of the quintessential green papaya salad (Som Tam). Poached shrimp is added to this sweet, sour, and spicy salad to turn it into a complete meal.

Note: Do not be tempted to use frozen corn kernels. They are too mushy to use in this recipe. Use raw corn kernels, if you like the flavor and texture of raw corn. Or, do as the recipe instructs: cook the corn only lightly.
