Thai Pork Satay Recipe

This satay recipe is the ultimate grilling dish, and when this recipe is made with pork it turns out juicy with a pleasant sweetness that even kids go for. But chicken or beef can also be substituted for delicious results. There are myriad ways to serve satay: it's wonderful straight from the grill as a finger food since it's already on a stick - perfect for an outdoor party. Or plate it up with rice on the side and my optional satay sauce as a dip. The sauce is authentic and true - made with real peanuts instead of a lot of recipes out there (which are made with peanut butter and don't do the sauce justice in my opinion). I've just as often served this satay without the sauce - yummy both ways. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Thai Lemon-Coconut Shrimp!

This luscious shrimp recipe features lemon and coconut flavors combined with succulent shrimp for a taste experience you won't want to miss. Thai food is known for its exotic and oftentimes heady combinations, and this is a prime example of this description. Who could imagine this dish is also a cinch to make? The ingredients are simple and, if you cook Asian food, are probably already in your pantry. Coconut milk is key, along with some fresh lemons, garlic, chili, and fresh coriander. I like to make this dish for guests because it never fails to impress and yet it's easy to whip up. Enjoy!

Thai Greatest Grilled Chicken

This Thai grilled chicken dish is simply exquisite. First the chicken is drenched in a herb/spice/sauce mixture which is left to marinate at least an hour before grilling. It's then served up with a simple condiment and fresh coriander for the ultimate summer grilling dish. The grilled chicken tradition in Thailand is long and rich, and you can find dishes like this being grilled over outdoor braziers and simple grilled set over charcoal in iron pots. When I was in Thailand I found my favorite food was cooked right on the beach by a woman who toted her portable kitchen in a little wagon back and forth from her house everyday to sell to passers-by. I love that about Thai food - it's so simple, yet so flavorful. Hope you enjoy this true Thai street dish as much as my family does.

Thai Salad in 10 Minutes

This Thai salad has loads of crunch and flavor, and the best part is how easy it is to make it - you can toss it up in just 10 minutes! I serve this dish as a tasty side salad to any meal, and I also find it excellent served alongside grilled fish and chicken. Add as much or as little chili as you like - it's delicious mild or spicy. And incidentally, some of my readers have found this salad has helped them shed a few pounds. I believe it's because of the fat-free dressing and the fact that it's so flavorful, you feel completely satisfied despite the low number of calories. Perfect for swim suit season!

Thai Salad with Grilled Garlic-Chili Shrimp

Imagine crisp summer greens topped with succulent Thai garlic-chili infused shrimp, all tossed up with a tangy Thai dressing. This magic concoction is marvelously simple to make yet impressive to serve. Wonderful on its own, or paired with your favorite white wine. I love to serve this dish for lunch or as a special tapas plate in the evening. The shells of the shrimp can be left on for easier grilling and here's a great tip: cooking them in the shell helps to keep all those succulent juices that make shrimp taste so good. A perfect summer dish, and easy as a summer breeze to make. Enjoy!
