Gaeng Tay Poe

This delicious recipe is unique because it uses the whole kaffir lime fruit, which is uncommon in Thai curry. It's one of our family favorites. Gaeng Tay Po has wonderful crossover appeal for people who might come from a European-American background. The citrusy flavor, combined with the gentle and sharp flavor of kaeng kua, and the emphasis on using healthy crispy greens, all create a very satisfying meal. This should be a best seller at most Thai restaurants, perhaps it just hasn't yet caught on. Try to use the real morning glory (see photo and comment below, called Pak Boong in Thai).

Tay Po refers to the fish that was used in the past for this recipe, pangasius lamaudii (black-ear catfish), but the fish has such a strong smell that nowadays people use belly pork.

Kaeng Kua Sour Bamboo Shoot with Shrimp

Since starting ImportFood.com in 1999 we've featured hundreds of Thai recipes and street vendor videos, but not nearly enough attention has been given to recipes that use bamboo shoots. Here's an authentic Thai recipe that highlights the flavor of sour bamboo shoots. Lovers of authentic Thai recipes, please try this. You might want to cut the bamboo slices into smaller pieces, up to your own preference.
