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.

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.

Crispy sand whiting with Thai chilli paste and crispy Thai basil ผัดเผ็ดปลาเห็ดโคน

 

Every Sunday afternoon at around 4pm at the fresh food market near my home, every shop will start to discount their products as they will be closed on Monday and Tuesday. I go there sometimes and usually get a lot of things at a very good price. It is also a good time to try something that I haven’t tried cooking with. If I like the new ingredient that is good, if not I only paid a little bit and have no regrets.

Last week I went there and got a bag of “Sand whiting fish” there were 3 fish in the bag for only $5. I brought it home and tried to think what to do with them. With other ingredients that I got I created the dish called “Pad Phed” which is spicy stir fry. Spicy stir fry can be used with many types of protein such as chicken, pork, beef and fish.
