Pacific Rim, Week 8: Thai 2
Clockwise from clams in red curry: sizzling fried fish (red snapper) with sweet Thai chili sauce, conch in red curry, Thai coconut chicken, Thai chicken fried rice.
There were dishes I didn't get a chance to take individual shots of, though for the life of me, I can't figure out how. Missing dishes include conch in red curry, Phad Thai, and pho kho tom (cold rice noodles with shrimp), and the truly amazing and much beloved Thai iced tea.

Don't soak rice noodles or cook rice noodles for too long--they'll turn into a mush blob and you'll lift out a wok-shaped noodle pancake when you try to flip them out.
I'm not sure if turkey's a traditional Thai ingredient. I'm sure it's not. We just had it around and it needed to be used up, so into the green curry it went. I'll leave out the long discussion I had with my Hun about whether or not there were turkeys living in Thailand. =\ I will say that turkey goes well in green curry. Curry makes everything better!
The fried whole fish is actually just the carcass--the part leftover after you slice the fillets off. You just batter it, fry it in the wok, and put it on the platter as decoration.
