My mission this afternoon? Try and replicate last year’s excellent recipe for Spaghetti Thailandese with ingredients from the Gourmet Market in Korat.
Can’t buy seafood any fresher than at Angsila market (Chon Buri province, Thailand). The fishermen literally dock their boats there. Definitely worth the visit when you’re staying in the region. The market has a service that packs your purchases with ice, in a styrofoam box. After an 8 hour drive (in a car with a/c) up country, the ice hadn’t melted yet. More pictures and the resulting dish if you continue reading.
After my local Chinese take-away restaurant went out of business, I was faced with a practical problem. Over the last 5 years, I had gotten used to having healthy personalized dishes 15 minutes and 5 steps away. My options were limited: either give up on my fitness diet (plenty of protein and veggies, low on fat) and resort to other take-away, or start cooking those meals myself. I grabbed the wok with both hands and came up with this delicious, cheap, cheerful, healthy and very quick solution, with minimal washing-up to be done afterwards.
