1. Classic Thai Satay (with Real Peanut Sauce)

There's satay, and then there's homemade Thai satay! If you've never had the real stuff, then you're going to be blown away by the succulent taste of this satay recipe (better than any restaurant)! Strips of chicken or beef are marinated in a special Thai paste, then skewered and grilled on the BBQ, grilled on an indoor grill, or broiled in your oven. Serve with homemade peanut sauce for the ultimate taste sensation (recipe included). A great party food!

2. Classic Thai Barbecue Chicken (with Dipping Sauce)

Barbecued Chicken with Dipping Sauce

This barbecue chicken recipe is truly bursting with flavor. Marinated first in a garlicky sweet and sour sauce, the chicken is then easily barbecued to perfection. Add a sweet, sour, and spicy sauce as either a dip or a glaze, and this dish will be the life of your dinner or lunch party! A recipe you will want to keep in your files - for life. And it can also be "barbecued" in your oven!

3. Thai Grilled Whole Fish with Coriander-Chili Sauce

This fish recipe can be made outdoors on the barbecue, or you can pan-fry the fish indoors (or grill it on a stove-top grill). You'll love the tenderness of the fish combined with this fantastic, taste-bud-awakening sauce, which can be made anywhere from mild to extra spicy to suit your taste. And nearly any whole "white-fleshed" fish can be used for this recipe (here I've chosen rainbow trout, but feel free to substitute whole snapper, sea bream, talapia, gray mullet, or the fish of your choice). ENJOY!

4. Vegetarian/Vegan Thai Satay (with Real Satay Sauce)

Vegetarian and vegan satay can be as delicious as regular satay, but there's a secret to good vegetarian satay: a good marinade. This satay marinade recipe comes direct from the Southeast-Asian cooks in my husband's family (Thai and Malaysian), passed down from one generation to another. So if you've been disappointed with other veggie satay you've tried, be sure to give this version a go!

5. Thai Grilled Steak with Flavorful Sauce

Thai Grilled Steak

This grilled steak recipe has two names in Thailand, either "Weeping Tiger" or "Waterfall Beef". The steak is easily marinated, then barbequed over a hot grill. Although you can enjoy this steak whole, in Thailand it is traditionally sliced up thinly and served with the very flavorful accompanying sauce. If you like beef, you'll love this dish!

6. New Grilled Thai Honey-Garlic Chicken (Easy!)

Delicious Grilled Thai Honey-Garlic Chicken!
This Thai version of Honey Garlic Chicken turns ordinary chicken breast or thigh into an amazing-tasting meal, plus it's super-easy to make. Here I've grilled it, but it's just as wonderful baked in the oven in case the weather doesn't cooperate (both methods included here). Makes a great dinner served together with rice or over a salad, or whatever side dishes you desire.
