Fried Fish with Red Curry Sauce

Pla Rad Prik Gaeng 2

When I was a kid, 70% of protein in my food was from fresh water fish. I lived near one of most gorgeous and fertile rivers in the northeast of Thailand, Namphong River, where it was flourished with fish, shrimp and clams. Fish like Tilapia and Snakehead Fish was one of the stable food of

Stir Fried Chicken with Baby Corn and Capsicum

I really love a simple stir fried anything on top of hot rice when I cook for just me. It took less than 20 minutes to make a whole meal. This is how I cook lunch. I stir fry something. While I cook rice which normally takes about 15 minutes, I just throw things I

Garlic, ginger, white pepper, salt and soy sauce… that are all we need to compost a comforting warmed oven grilled chicken. I love the way the flavors dance in our months and the succulent meat melt away. However, when a small family like ours makes an effort of grilling a whole giant bird, no matter

Prawn in Tamarind Sauce

I stayed with my aunt when I was two and a half years old while my family was away. It was late summer and the sun was warm and bright. The picture of that house still haunted me (in the good way), so cozy, so organized, so traditionally Thai, so clean. When you open the front door

Hot and Sweet Snappers

I know I said it a number of times that we loved fish and how we had lots of them in our diet. We love the glorious jewel red snappers. The meat is tender and perfect for many recipes we love. We don’t usually get the nice fillet around here, but I am brave enough to
