One more month....

....and we will be back in Thailand. I can't believe it's been more than a year.

At the moment we are busy preparing and planning where to go and what to see. We still have a few open spots in our planning.

So any tips on where to go or what to see are more than welcome.

2 lb minced fish
1 ts salt
1/2 c red curry paste
1 ea egg1 tb nam pla
1 c finely chopped green bean

1 vegetable oil

Cucumber Salad
1 c cucumber sliced
3 ea shallots, sliced thinly
1 ea red hot chilli pepper, sliced
2 tb sugar
1 tb vinegar
1 ts salt
1/2 c hot water

Instructions:

Tod Man Plaa
Mix the fish, salt, curry paste, egg and nam plaa. Add the green bean and basil. Continue to mix until the paste is sticky enough to be able to roll into balls. Form paste into balls with your hand. Flatten each piece into 2 inch circles. Heat oil over medium heat. Fry fish until light golden in colour. Dry on paper towel.

Salad
In a serving bowl, arrange cucumber, shallot and chilli in layers. Mix sugar, vinegar and salt. Add hot water; stir until sugar dissolves. Pour over cucumber mixture.
