My favorite beaches In Thailand

meThailand has some of the world's most incredible beaches. Whether you're in the Andaman Sea on Thailand's Indian Ocean coast or the South China Sea on the Pacific side of Thailand, opportunities abound to play in the sand, snorkel, swim, dive and sun bathe (perhaps in the buff in a few locations). There are other things to do in Thailand, but the country's beaches are a huge attraction for foreign tourists.

Thai Fried Rice with Shrimp Paste (Khao Kluk Kapi)

khao-kluk-kapiThis Thai fried rice dish is called khao kluk kapi. You don't see this dish very often and then only in Thai neighbourhoods and never in tourist regions. The big difference between this dish and normal fried rice is that the rice is fried with shrimp paste which gives it a brown look. It is also seasoned with sugar and fish sauce. Sometimes sweet pork is added onto the rice. To make this you fry the pork with shallots in a wok. You then season with fish sauce, dark soy sauce and sugar. After adding the pork to the plate. This fried rice is garnished with shallots, thin slices of omelette, grated mango, chopped long beans, cucumber and lime wedges. Also phrik nam pla is drizzled over it if desired. Phrik nam pla is fish sauce with chopped green and red chiles. It is worth trying this as an alternative to normal fried rice. It is a delicious dish! The key to making this dish appeal to Western palates is to fry the kapi first to release the smell. Place the kapi on a piece of tinfoil, place in toaster oven and toast to develope the flavour. Keep the window open as it will smell very fishy as it cooks. This roasting develops the flavour and releashes the strong fishy smell.

Thai fish cakes (Tod Man Pla)

fish_cakesThai Fish Cakes or Tod Man Pla to give them their Thai name, are eaten as a snack food, or as a side dish to a larger meal, all over Thailand. Alone, they are tasty, not too fishy in flavour, with strong hints of coriander. However, the flavour is considerably enhanced when eaten with a sweet chilli dip, and this will always be offered as an accompaniment, even if purchased from a street vendor.

Thai Beef Salad (Yum Nuea)

beef-saladAs with many Thai dishes which share the title “salad”, Thai Beef Salad (yum nuea) is not strictly a salad as most people would recognise it. Instead, it is a meat and vegetable dish which is cooked very quickly, leaving the vegetables almost raw, and it is then served hot. In many ways the Thai Beef Salad is the very definition of a stir fry. Simple ingredients, cooked very quickly at a high temperature in a wok (or frying pan). Where Thai Beef Salad does differ from other stir fry dishes, particularly those influenced by Chinese cuisine, is in the taste. A good Thai Beef Salad is fiery, due to the red chillies used in the preparation of the dish.

Larb Gai (Spicy chicken salad)

larb-gaiLarb Gai salad is classic Thai. I make it with chicken, but you canmake with pork or beef . One of its special ingredients is ground roasted rice, which adds a satisfying grittiness and subtle flavor (Note: if you don't have time to make the ground roasted rice, either leave it out or substitute ground peanuts). Another key ingredient in this dish is fresh mint. The salad is best served while the chicken is still hot from the pan and the greens are cold, like a Western-style grilled chicken salad. This dish is so good, Excellent with a hot sticky rice.
