Salted Cod with Coconut Curry - Episode 156

Salted Cod with Coconut Curry - Episode 156

Salted Cod with Coconut Curry is a great tasting dish. This is the first time that I have cooked with salted cod so I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of taste, texture, and basically just how well it would cook. I am happy to say that Cristol Brand Salted Codfish was super easy to cook with, was not overly salty, and it had a great texture and taste. Since this recipe used salted cod, I wanted to add something to provide a balance to the salt. Deciding on coconut and curry to act as a balance was a great idea, it added a level of creaminess to this dish that was really unexpected.

Thai Hot Pot สุกี้ อร่อยง่ายได้ที่บ้าน - Episode 151

Thai Hot Pot (or Suki) is a Thai version of a classic Asian Hot Pot. It is basically just a hodg-podg of various vegetables and meats that are boiled in a basic broth. While it sounds simple, the flavors that develop in the broth can become pretty complex and delicious as the meal draws out. As the vegetables and meats cook in the broth over time, the broth becomes a very unique soup for everyone to enjoy. The great thing about hot pot is that you don't really need to follow any set rules. You can use your favorite ingredients to ensure that you really get a meal that you will love. No two hot pots need ever be the same when you think about it this way. You can even do vegetarian version if want.
