Thai-Style Grilled Chicken (Gai Yang)

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. There's a reason you can't walk more than a few blocks in Bangkok without catching a whiff of its intense aroma. Here's how to make it in your own backyard. More

First Look: Cocktails at Fish Sauce in Portland, OR

"Tommy Klus is a walking encyclopedia of full of cocktail and spirits knowledge," says bartender Will Ray of Portland's recently-opened Fish Sauce. "When I met him, I felt like a newborn baby, even with six years of experience." The two first met when Ray was apprenticing at KASK and they're now shaking up American classic cocktails with a hint of Asian influence at the new Northwest Portland Vietnamese restaurant. "Tommy wanted the drinks to be refreshing and light—they should complement the complex flavors found in Vietnamese cuisine," says Ray. More

Thai Pomelo and Shrimp Salad (Miang Som O)

I used to call miang "one-bite salad," but I'm rethinking it as it seems to suggest that you're supposed to wrap the whole thing up into a big bundle and eat it in one bite.

Stir-Fried Snap Peas and Mushrooms with Fish Sauce and Basil

This stir-fry is quick, delicious, nutritious, and has only 9 ingredients (ok, 11 if you count oil and salt), which puts it pretty high in the running as a candidate for my list of "100 greatest easy weeknight side dishes of all time," if I ever get around to writing it down. I am not a list-maker by nature. Snap peas are sweet, crunchy, and tender, and with a hint of smoky char from the wok, are one of the greats as far as stir-fry veggies are concerned. And hon-shimeji mushroom—all mushrooms, in fact—are almost custom made for stiry-frys. More

Honey Baked Chicken

The chicken, believe it or not, is not the star of the show here (though it's not at all shabby). It's the marinade. This basic recipe will help you expand your Thai cooking repertoire by creating many different flavor variants using other Thai seasonings. More
