Mango Sticky Rice

My favourite thing about Australian summers, apart from the warmer weather, is that it is also mango season. Among the famous Thai desserts that include mango is Kow neiw ma moong (mango sticky rice). Continue reading “Mango Sticky Rice”

Review: Eating out at Zaab Street Food

Guest Blogger Charinya Ruecha of @charinyas_kitchen visits Zaab Street Food in Canberra!

Zaab Street FoodZaab translates to both Thai and Lao. In Lao it means “delicious” … In Thai, Zaab means “intensely flavoured or extra spicy” – Charinya

My first experience in a Thai restaurant in Australia was a week after I arrived. We (my husband, his family and I) were spending my first summer holiday on the NSW south coast. After discussing choices for dinner everyone agreed that I might be missing Thai food so they should take me out to a Thai restaurant!
Oh yes! I was overjoyed and started thinking of delicious Thai foods like som tum, beef jerky, sticky rice etc.

Squid Stuffed With Sweet & Sour Sauce

Sweet and sour sauce creates a rare Thai dish that features no chilli and results in a plain taste. This makes it perfect for anyone seeking a break from fiery flavours. This dish highlights squid stuffed with pork mince and sweet & sour sauce, which may take a bit of work but I can confirm it is worth making.

Glass Noodles Salad ยำวุ้นเส้น

Spicy salad, or “Yum” in Thai language, is a very popular dish. There are so many varieties of salad and you can add almost anything you like in the dish.

Thai fried beef crispy fried garlic (เนื้อทอดกระเทียม) 

I love Australian beef, however it took me a while to learn which meat cut goes best with which cooking method, as Thailand and Australia have different cuts. I remember when shopping with my husband he told me to look at the price, as the more you pay generally the better quality meat you will get. This meant that I usually I bought steak such as scotch fillet, eye fillet for grilling and gravy beef to make Thai mussaman curry.

Steamed fish with ginger and soy sauce ปลานึ่งซีอิ๊ว

I love fish, but when I first came to live in Australia it took me a while to know which fish I would love to cook with as my husband doesn’t eat fish so he couldn’t help much. In Thailand we usually have fresh water fish. It is easy to find them in the rivers that run through every town, but here in Australia most of the fish are sold in seafood shops. I have tried many kinds of fish already, but the fish I use the most are snapper, Spanish mackerel and barramundi. I usually buy Spanish mackerel cutlets, and I love to fry them and top with fish sauce and sometimes make a green mango salad to serve alongside. Barramundi is a delightful protein in “Tom Yum soup” both grilled or steamed. Today I would like to present one of my preferred ways of cooking the fish.
