SMOKED NAM PRIK EGGPLANT SALAD

Nam prik is a classic Thai sauce that works really well with eggplant. Smoking the eggplant adds another dimension of flavour here, but be sure to get the strips in the nam prik as soon as you can while they’re still warm to allow the eggplant to soak up the flavours. This is a good dish warm or cool, and I like it with rice and a side of grilled fish, as pictured at right.

MONKFISH KEBABS WITH THAI NOODLE SALAD (2018)

These Zingy Fish kebabs are perfect for a summer meal. The original recipe came from issue 8, and it’s hard to believe we were lacking in so many essential ingredients for a Thai recipe back in 1988 – pasta bows were used instead of rice noodles, bay leaves stood in for kaffir lime leaves, and there was no fish sauce! If you can remember to soak the bamboo skewers overnight, they last well on the barbecue.
