Hor Mok Kai Maengda
Hor mok is an elegant recipe full of rich flavors that represent all of what we love about Thai food. This heavenly combination of fish, red curry paste, kaffir lime leaves, sugar and coconut cream is one of our all time favorites.
Here the vendor prepares it with the eggs of maengda talay, a type of horseshoe crab found in the Gulf of Thailand.
We also feature a video, filmed in Thailand, for an original and authentic version of hor mok.
Hor Mok may be hard to find in your local Thai restaurant, but if it's on the menu that's a sign that the restaurant is not only good but also authentic. It might be spelled in different ways on English/Thai menus, such as "haw mukh" or "haw mok".
