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

Crying Tiger Lamb From 'Everyday Thai Cooking'

Serious Eats Kate Williams 1 comment

Crying Tiger Lamb from Katie Chin's new cookbook, Everyday Thai Cooking, is named for its ability to make even a tiger weep. It's not only fiery, but it's also got a strong hand with salty fish sauce, sour lime juice, and grassy cilantro. In other words: it's seriously awesome, and a true gift to lamb lovers. More

Pantry Essentials Andrew Wheeler 14 comments

The anchovy is not a universally loved fish, but it is the key ingredient in fish sauce, the delicious and essential seasoning that provides much of the saltiness in Southeast Asian cuisine. More

First Look: Cocktails at Fish Sauce in Portland, OR

Drinks Greg Harned 4 comments

"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)

Serious Eats Leela Punyaratabandhu 1 comment

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. Calling it "salad cups" doesn't do it either since a miang like this isn't usually served assembled in little lettuce cups. Either way, this shrimp and pomelo salad served with chili jam is simple, balanced, and delicious. More

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

J. Kenji López-Alt Post a comment

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

My Thai: Crying Tiger (Suea Rong Hai)

My Thai Leela Punyaratabandhu Post a comment

Here we are again, a classic Thai dish with a name of dubious origin and meaning. Just a few weeks ago, we dealt with Son-in-Law Eggs. Now this. Is it Tiger's Tear? Tiger Cry? Crying Tiger? Weeping Tiger? Why Tiger? Why cry? We'll let the animal mourn in its own way while we enjoy this classic grilled beef dish. More

My Thai: Thai Dried Chili Dipping Sauce (Jaew)

My Thai Leela Punyaratabandhu 1 comment

This smoky, spicy, assertive dipping sauce goes very well with grilled meats. Hold the thick, cloying marinade or sauce; marinate your choice of meat as simply as you can; then grill (or pan-fry) it and serve it with this regional dip. Warm Thai sticky rice on the side sure won't hurt. More

Thai Dried Chili Dipping Sauce

Serious Eats Leela Punyaratabandhu 2 comments

This smoky, salty and sour dipping sauce goes well with all kinds of meat that have been barely seasoned and not covered with sauce. Try this with grilled chicken (marinated in not much more than some fish sauce and a bit of sugar) and steamed Thai sticky rice. More

My Thai: Spicy Shrimp and Green Apple Salad

My Thai Leela Punyaratabandhu 2 comments

We've got lots of flavors and textures going on here as you can see. But that's exactly what some of us love so much about Thai-style salads. Thai cooks aren't shy about pairing fruits with meat, the sweet with the savory, or the smoky with the fresh. More

Spicy Shrimp and Green Apple Salad

Serious Eats Leela Punyaratabandhu Post a comment

A quick salad of shrimp, apples, tomatoes, and herbs in a fish sauce and lime juice dressing, this can be served as a stand-alone salad or, as the Thai people often do, with rice as an entrée. More

My Thai: Honey Baked Chicken

My Thai Leela Punyaratabandhu 7 comments

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

Zak Pelaccio's Asparagus Kerabu

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 1 comment

Spring is here and with it come many stalks of wonderfully green asparagus, and while we love them simply steamed, drowned with hollandaise or topped off with a wobbly poached egg, we're thinking this Asparagus Kerabu from Zak Pelaccio's Eat with Your Hands might just be our asparagus go to for the season.

My Thai: Son-in-Law Eggs (Fried Hard-Boiled Eggs in Tamarind Sauce)

Leela Punyaratabandhu 2 comments

Son-in-law eggs are loved so much by the Thai people. It's one of those down-home dishes that you don't usually find at fancy restaurants in Thailand; you find them mostly at no-frills rice-curry shops or school cafeterias. And you'd hardly ever find them at a Thai restaurant in North America. More
