Green Papaya Salad

Green Papaya Salad at Trees and Fishes, Vanuatu

raw pawpaw salad

Green Papaya crunches like carrot, but tastes mild like a cucumber. This papaya (or pawpaw) salad is a light and refreshing salad using easy to find local produce of Vanuatu such as the green papaya, local raw peanuts, birds eye chili, lime juice and fresh mint that gives this salad a nice balance of flavor.

Serves 6


  • 1 Green papaya
  • ½ Cup of raw chopped peanuts
  • Handful of mint leaves
  • 4 Tablespoon of lemon or lime juice
  • ½ Onion, thinly sliced
  • Olive oil
  • Sweet chilli sauce
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Grate your papaya (this can be done in advance and kept in a cool place until ready to serve). To serve toss all the ingredients together in a large bowl, stir gently, chill for five minutes and serve with fish, chicken or just on it’s own with some crusty bread.

This is the place!

I couldn’t have asked for more in regards to service and hospitality. If you are looking for a fishing destination, this is the place. Martin Richards

Couldn’t speak higher of Ocean Blue and Trees & Fishes.

We’ve been twice now and both times have been incredible! Jeanine and her team at the lodge are so accommodating and friendly, making sure you’re relaxed and looked after! Our guide & deckie were knowledgeable and put us into some incredible fish, while being super friendly and giving us some good tips along the way. […]

Truly memorable fishing experience on every level.

The staff take exceptionally great care of you, especially Jeanine who goes that extra mile to make sure you are well looked after.
