Well this is a main sauce in Thai cuisine. Now that I've been posting Thai recipes, I have to include this versatile sauce. It can be used for dipping, marinading, or to spice just about anything. I also use this sauce for lettuce wraps.
A spicy chicken and vegetable soup balancing many flavors, including complex citrus and more earthy tastes contrasted by spicy components. This is a very aromatic meal, and is especially good for opening up the sinuses of cold sufferers. This is loosely based on a few varied Thai soup recipes, and from my own tastes and desire to try new things. Since it is elementarily based from Thai recipes I decided to name it Phet gai soup: "Phet" means "spicy hot," and "Gai" means chicken in Thai.
I lived in Hollywood for a few years and I would frequent Torung Restaurant on Hollywood Blvd. often. This is a dish that I will always go out of my way for when I visit L.A. I have attempted it several times and this is the closest I have come to recreating it. It is actually a very simple and easy version of a Thai standard: Nam Prik Pao.
A spicy summer noodle salad.
This was a dish we had on a recent trip to Thailand. I've invented my own recipe based on the flavors I remembered and my knowledge of Thai cooking. It's a great side dish with a Thai meal. You can increase or reduce the fish sauce to taste or add some fresh chiles to this if you want a little heat. Serve, and listen for the ooo's and aaaa's.

If you have some extra roast beef, consider this food experiment: Thai flavors inside the classic South American pastry shell, the empanada. An incredible sweet/spicy mix.
A hearty meal replete with Fall flavors.
This soup is very popular in Northern Thailand and the recipe varies slightly depending on who's making it. Typical of Thai cooking! Steps 1 through 4 can be done well in advance. The soup will become tastier the longer it sits. Just reheat it and go to step 5. Serve with lots of Singha beer!
An easy wok or skillet dish of peppers, onions, chicken and a peanut sauce, this is always a hit. Serve over rice.
This Thai-style chicken curry is super easy to make, and tastes just like the curries you order at Thai restaurants. You can adjust the heat by adding more or less chili paste. You can also substitute shrimp, pork, beef or tofu for the chicken. I serve with Jasmine rice. The Thai ingredients can be found on the ethnic aisle at the grocery store.
A cool, Asian-inspired summer salad for your next BBQ.
