Not all areas are lucky enough to have a Thai restaurant nearby, so Thai food lovers have to come up with unique ways to spice up their meals if they want to experience this cuisine. Fortunately, all dishes, including your Easter favorites, can be tweaked just a little so you can have the perfect Thai recipe.
Here are a few classic Easter dishes you can give a slight Thai twist to just by making a couple of changes:
- Grilled Lamb Chops: It is common to find grilled lamb chops served at Easter dinners nationwide. However, while traditional lamb chops might use seasoning rubs consisting of herbs like garlic, rosemary, and tarragon, you can give them a Thai spin by using curry paste instead.
- Roasted Chicken: Another Easter staple usually found at the center of the dinner table is roasted chicken. This is another dish that relies heavily on aromatic rubs that seep through the chicken’s skin as it cooks. You can easily give this dish a Thai influence by using a marinade containing coriander, soy sauce, oyster sauce, turmeric, honey, galangal, and lemon grass stalks.
- Deviled Eggs: If your family is like many traditionalists, it isn’t really Easter dinner until the deviled eggs are served. To turn this classic dish into one that has a little bit of a Thai kick, add some sriracha and cayenne pepper with your egg yolk, mayonnaise, and mustard mix. Blend it all as you normally would, and add the mixture to your eggs whites for a spicy surprise.
