IF YOU ARE LIKE ME AND LOVE THAI FOOD, THIS ONE IS FOR YOU. THIS DISH COMES TOGETHER FAST AND HAS ALL THE FLAVORS YOU CRAVE FROM THAI FOOD.
So what’s the secret to good Thai food? Balance
Thai food has a wonderful way of incorporating different flavor profiles and making them sing together! This dish has your slightly sweet, salty, umami, and of course spicy!
This recipe came together fast an easy one afternoon. I was literally going through my fridge trying to clear up whatever veggies and herbs I had on hand. That day I had some Thai basil, which inspired this entire dish.
I always keep frozen shrimp in my freezer because they are a breeze to defrost and take minutes to cook. I went with that as a protein option but you could always do this with chicken, beef, tempeh, etc. Whatever works for you!
For the vegetables, I am sharing the ones I used based on what I had on hand that day but I promise you, you can use whatever you want. This is a perfect fridge forage dish!
If you don’t have Thai basil a combination of Italian basil and mint gives a similar taste profile.
Now let’s get to it!
