Tom Yum Shrimp

Winter is rolling around the corner and I know this is the season for the suds and sniffles! I’ve got just the perfect remedy for you… better than chicken noodle soup. This Tom Yum soup is spicy, sour, and perfect to clear up those stuffy noses and sore throats. And guys trust me, again, it’s SO SO simple! This recipe is so healthy, filled with natural ingredients like lemongrass and lime juice. The base of the soup is just water, but you can also use chicken broth as well, it’ll give it a little extra kick of flavor. What’s great about this recipe, also, is that it can be a vegetarian or vegan recipe. Just remove the shrimp and don’t use chicken broth as a base and your good to go! Simple, fast, and DELICIOUS. The most common type of meat or seafood in this recipe is always shrimp but you can also use chicken or any desired meat. Or, like stated above, of course you can just keep it simple and use veggies! I …

Roasted Crispy Pork

Drum roll please…….. Look at that! How amazing does this look?! Let me tell you guys how darn simple this recipe is to make. I know, it looks quite complicated to achieve these delicious, crispy, fatty layers, but it’s surprisingly so easy. This dish requires only 4 ingredients and all you really have to do is pamper your pork belly and get it ready to sit in the oven and roast to perfection! Insert some garlic wholes into the middle of your pork belly to give it that juicy flavor, rub the pork nicely with some spice, and sprinkle the top with salt! How easy is that?? Now let’s talk about the salt for a little. The key is to get that super crispy top so, when you pour the salt on top of the pork belly, BE SUPER GENEROUS. I’m telling you, you’ve got to have a super thick layer of salt that covers the entire skin side of the pork belly. Just pack that stuff on! And don’t be afraid because eventually, we’re …

Pad See Ew

Hey guys I’m back with another delicious Thai stir fried noodle dish!! This time it’s even better… Today I made Pad See Ew which directly translates to “Stir Fried Soy Sauce”. Although that sounds a bit odd, it sure is tasty. This recipe is equally as popular as Pad Thai both here in the states and back in Thailand; And surprisingly, it’s SO SO simple! AHHH these get me so excited! πŸ™‚ What I love about this, again, is the diversity and lenience of the ingredients. In terms of meat, you have all the options you would like… chicken, pork, beef, tofu, or just veggies! It gives such a wide range of room for alterations. Also, the ingredients are quite minimal and easy to obtain. Basic ingredients such as soy sauce, fish sauce, noodles, and eggs are all that are really required! The size of noodle that I used in this recipe is a little smaller in size than the original noodle, however, the type of noodle is correct. You want to get rice noodles, …

Pad Thai Chicken

Surprisingly simple Pad Thai recipe! This dish is SO SO tasty and it’s actually very easy to make. It requires minimal time, so if you’re in a rush this is perfect. All the ingredients are pretty easy to acquire, the only thing that’s a little difficult is the tamarind. I used tamarind juice concentrate for my recipe, which is what’s recommended. I believe there’s a tamarind paste but that’s too strong. Regardless, you definitely can’t take out the tamarind because that’s what really holds together this dish. Β  Again, what I love about these recipes is that there’s so much ease on the ingredients… if you’re vegetarian or even vegan, you can alter what you put in it! You can remove the chicken and just use tofu or you can even just do the noodles with no source of protein. You can even add some vegetables if you want, anything you’d like!! As long as you have the sauce, which is a combination of tamarind juice concentrate, fish sauce, lemon juice, and sugar; That’s what …
