One of my favourite ways to cook delicate fillets of fresh caught Pacific white fish is an old French method called “En Papillote” (literally “in parchment“). The fish is steamed with whatever flavours and accompaniments you desire and everything comes out perfectly tender and delicious. For recipe #5 in the Thai Kitchen Canada #TKLucky7 Lucky Recipe Challenge, I created this En Papillote Sweet Chili Coconut Sole. For recipe 1, recipe 2, recipe 3 and recipe 4, see links.

These Mango Shrimp Spicy Lettuce Rice Cups were an absolutely perfect little lunchtime meal. Easy to put together, filling and delicious. They take no time at all to make, and even less if you make the rice in advance. Pairing fresh shrimp with juicy mango brings out the sweetness in both and adding a crunchy lettuce leaf gives it a wonderful texture. The rice not only adds substance but an interesting mouthfeel along with the sweet mango and plump shrimp.

Day three of the Thai Kitchen Canada #TKLucky7 Lucky Recipe Challenge and I was tasked with creating an appetizer that contained rice. At first I couldn’t think of something small enough to be an appetizer but that also contained rice, a very filling ingredient. Having not had rice for almost a year, I was pretty excited to cook up some of Thai Kitchen’s “Select harvest” Thai Jasmine rice. There’s something extra fragrant and delicious about this rice. Light and fluffy and it cooks up perfectly every time, no rice cooker needed.
For this recipe I chose to spotlight a red curry sauce with the steak for a spicy little number with a crunch from the crisp cucumber and a hint of sweetness from the coconut milk. With only a teaspoon of rice per serving, you could probably shovel a lot of these in at one sitting. Have at ‘er!

If you’ve been following me on any of my other social media hubs (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest), you might have noticed me mentioning the Thai Kitchen Lucky Recipe Challenge that I am featured in. As one of seven other Celebrity Bloggers across Canada, I am tasked with posting seven recipes for seven days (starting today) and live blogging them via Instagram, then to my blog and also on my Facebook Page. Each recipe will use a Thai Kitchen product (or a couple) and be what we like to call “Global Mash-Ups”. The recipes will not be your typical Thai dishes, although they will contain familiar Thai ingredients or sauces. The seven of us will be vying for the prestigious title of Thai Kitchen’s new Ambassador.
