The Food Lab: How to Make Thai-Style Grilled Chicken (Gai Yang)

The Food Lab J. Kenji López-Alt 15 comments

Thai cooks are experts at grilling all manner of meats, but nowhere does that proficiency shine more brightly than with chicken. Crisp, golden skin, coated in a richly charred marinade of toasted spices and herbs seasoned with fish sauce and sugar, the chicken is butterflied, flattened, and threaded onto bamboo skewers before being slowly grilled over charcoal. It's tasty enough on its own, but dipped into a sweet and spicy chili sauce, it becomes mind-blowingly delicious. More

Thai-style grilled chicken coated in a marinade flavored with cilantro, white pepper, and fish sauce is one of the tastiest things you'll ever pull off of your grill.

Summer Grain Salads: Jasmine Rice With Grilled Vegetables and Cashews

Jennifer Olvera Post a comment

Inspired by Thai grilled beef salad (neua nam tok), this salad replaces the meat with grilled vegetables and adds fragrant jasmine rice. It's loaded with fresh herbs and dressed with a bracing, fish sauce-spiked lime vinaigrette. Plus, because the vegetables are grilled, they give the salad a deeper, smoky flavor. More

Grilled Steaks With Roasted Tomato Dipping Sauce (Crying Tiger, or Suea Rong Hai Kap Jaeo Ma-Khuea Thet) From 'Simple Thai Food'

Cook the Book Kate Williams 5 comments

Like son-in-law eggs, this "crying tiger" dish of grilled steak with spicy tomato sauce has a mysterious name. No one really knows if the tiger is crying because the steaks are good or bad, or if the sauce is just so spicy that it generates tears. I'm inclined to believe the latter, because if you're grilling rib-eye, it'd be a shame to serve it tough. More

This duo of pork and broccoli in Leela Punyaratabandhu's new cookbook, Simple Thai Food, is no exception. More
