Smoked salmon x2, and some laab gai with some stuff
Amy birthday party – some adult food!!!
Read http://ninakennett.com for more on the party – but a couple of very quick recipes from the party.
Adult food though, not the kidlets. Real easy, real quick, really nice!!!
Not in my usual style, so no real recipe format just a brief description.
Take a pack or two of smoked salmon, and cut to bite sized pieces. Arrange on a serving platter. Drizzle with some lemon juice. Scatter some finely sliced onion on top, also scatter some capers. Take a little mayonnaise and add in some wasabi – hey presto wasabi cream. Drizzle that on top and serve away. Looks quite nice doesn’t it. Apparently very tasty.
Even simpler this one.
Same as before – smoked salmon, slice to bite sized pieces, squeeze on some lemon juice and sprinkle over some pickled pink peppercorns.
Apparently a winner with many comments coming back, and an empty plate after the party.
Take a big pot, add in cold water, 4 flank steaks, 8 star anise, 8 cloves, a cup of soy sauce. Bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer. Let that sit for about 3 hours to break down the meat and make it ever so tender. Drain. Strip in to strips as you can see above and plate.
I served this with a dip of. Cup water, Cup soy sauce, Cup fish sauce, Cup lemon juice, 2 finely sliced chili padi, handful of chopped coriander.
Boom – winner winner!!!
No recipe for this as you can visit my Thai section and grab the laab recipe there.
But basically slightly different in that;
Replace the toasted chili powder with smoky paprika.
Lose the toasted rice.
Serve with lettuce leaves to use as ‘spoons’
This was flipping delicious, seriously!
