First a curry recipe and now this. Thai? What right do I have to be posting such recipes? Disclaimer: I have no experience with Thai cooking nor do I boast any culinary training in said field.
Nope. I'm just your average white chick who has an addiction to the heat that this kind of food brings. I can't get enough of it, and I can't always drive to Indianapolis to get my fix.
After trial and error and determination and maybe a pinch of obsession, I've created a satisfactory substitute that I can make at home.
Like any good Thai dish, these shrimp are layered with intense flavor – sour lime juice, honey, hot chili flakes, savory green onion, and fresh ginger.
Once they're seared to tender perfection and coated in a sticky-sweet spicy glaze, there's bound to be a party in your mouth.
This super simple marinade and my trusty cast-iron skillet make it easy to recreate Thai restaurant magic in my own kitchen.
I actually see no reason to ever leave the house again. The best part? From start to finish, the meal is on your plate in under 30 minutes and you don't have to waste any more time searching Yelp for the best Thai joint in the tri-state area.
Get your rice cooking while you prep the ingredients and before you know it, you'll be sitting down to a home-cooked version of Thai food that beats anything you could've ordered in.Print
