I’m sad I didn’t shoot this with something to scale. This was massive. Easily around 10cm in diameter.And I ate it all. 🙂

Probably my favorite dish I had in Bangkok. A whole fresh mango sliced, and served with a sticky rice flavored with a creamy slightly salty coconut milk. The combination of sweet juicy mango and the chewy salt and coconut cream from the rice is heaven. I endeavored to have this everyday while I was there.

A whole century duck egg stuffed into a spicy lemongrass infused fish ball, boiled and then deep fried. Sliced into quarters and served with cucumbers in a sweet vinegar.
Surprisingly good, with the cucumbers to help kill some of the burn from the very very spicy fishball.

My favorite thing to make for picnics or potlucks when I don’t bring a dessert. Crunchy sweet apples, savory tuna, and fresh cilantro make this a great salad for sandwiches, rolled up in pita bread or tortillas, or just spread on crusty toasted bread.

Easy Tuna Apple Salad

  • 1 large apple, cored and cut into small cubes. (any kind of apple will work, but I love sweet apples like Red Delicious, Fuji and Pink Lady)
  • 160g of tuna (canned or package in water), drained
  • 3-4 tbsp mayonnaise to taste
  • 1 clove minced garlic or equivalent garlic power
  • small dash white pepper
  • small dash dried parsley

Suggested additions

  • fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • chopped roasted walnuts, pine nuts, pecans
  • raisins or sultanas

—-
1. Combine tuna, apples, mayonnaise and garlic in a medium bowl.
2. Add white pepper, parsley and additional ingredients to taste, and mix well.
3. Chill for 30 minutes in the refrigerator before serving.

Enjoy with toast or crackers. Serves about 4-6.

Clockwise from the delicious pineapple…
a Thai custard pudding,
a mung bean paste dessert shaped like a mini orange,
a round orange ball made with egg yolks and jasmine syrup,
a oblong orange sweet made with coconut and rose syrup,
rice cake (khanom) made with pandan and coconut,
small cookie disk with coconut,
chewy coconut and rice flour ball,
and finally a sweet candied date.

What a way to get introduced to Thai desserts!
