Dishes from Thailand


So exciting!

Ok so there is a lot to talk about when it comes to Thailand and all the things within it. If you had some time to look over the last post, you would see that just like any country you visit, it depends on which region of the country you are in and the flavors will be so different. The idea of pairing such different flavors together gets me excited about new and different things. So here we go with starting off right.

One of the most common dishes we spoke about was Pad Thai. There are several versions of this and when you are out to eat, you can also express what level of heat or spiciness you want it to be. Here is a simple Pad Thai recipe if you want to experiment and start out. I would add shrimp or chicken to it as well.

Since it is getting nicer outside these days, I thought added some ideas for salads would be fun.

Thai Cucumber Grapefruit Salad

You want to be fancy and get out that noodle maker, maybe try a

Sweet & Sour noodle salad

Need some of the good kind of carbs? (yes there are good carbs friends). Try a

Thai Quinoa Salad

As for the main course, I thought a variety of different options would be nice. All easy and not too invasive.

Fish:

Mahi-mahi with Thai Coconut Curry Sauce

It has white rice listed on the recipe. Substituting brown rice instead of white will take away from the authentication of the dish, but will make is healthier.

Chicken:

Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce wraps are so killer and a change of pace than the usual burrito / taco wraps you might be used to. Lower in carbs and fat as well.

Thai Cashew Chicken

Rocking a bunch of veggies and nuts... how can you go wrong

Thai Baked Chicken

For the not too crazy adventurous people in our lives, this might be a good one to start with.

Beef:

Thai Basil Beef

Vegetarian:

Thai Red Curry with Vegetables

All of these sounds great and I cannot wait to hear about what you might have tried!

Happy Cooking :)
