Trai Thai!

Some of you may remember with pleasure an evening in the Cross Keys a few weeks ago, where Poom Kamolchanok Ferrier delighted us with a varied and superbly-cooked evening of Thai food.

Following that, she has kindly agreed to supply readers of The Wee Vine with one of her recipes:

Prawn with Tamarind Sauce

A delicious seafood dish with a beautiful sweet and sour sauce and easy to cook for dinner.

  • 8-10 Tiger Prawn
  • ½ Onion
  • 2 Cloves garlic
  • 1 ½ tbsp Fish sauce
  • 1 ½ tbsp Tamarind paste
  • 2 tbsp water

Put 2 tbsp of frying oil into the pan with medium high heat, then put shallots into the pan and cook quickly until they are golden brown colour, rest in the side plate.

Do the garlic the same as topic 1

To make a tamarind sauce, put fish sauce into the pan with medium heat, add palm sugar, tamarind paste and water until boiling, then simmer until it looks sticky, then take off the heat.

Deep fry tiger prawn, put the sauce on and garnish with crispy shallots, chilli and coriander and serve with rice.
