Recipe Notes

As with any Thai dish, the flavours can be adjusted to suit your own personal taste.

The long red chillies I use are extremely mild in heat. Feel free to substitute with one hot chilli if you like a more fiery dish or omit the chilli altogether if you don't like spicy food.


The recipe will serve 4 people as an entree or 2 as a main meal. By adding rice and Thai Chili Paste (Nam Prik Pao) the dish will serve 4 as a light main.
