dai/thai sunday supper

dai tartare

A few weeks ago, i had an open bottle of Greenwood Ridge reisling and a hankering for some kind of Asian food - so i popped open Hot Sour Salty Sweet and found a few things to try. Our Sunday supper ensued.

The menu:
dai tartare with gingered lemon drops (another dai tartare shot)

salmon, thai green curry, and coconut rice

The dai tartare was nice and simple - ground or chopped meat, mixed with Schezuan pepper & salt, served with a mild lettuce to wrap around spoonfuls of the meat. I was supposed to have a dipping powder of ground thai chilis and Schezuan pepper & salt, but i weaseled out of subbing chili powder for the thai chilis. Very tasty.

The drinks are ginger-infused vodka, a touch of simple syrup, and most of a mild lemon.

The salmon was pan-fried after marinating in a paste of lemongrass, ginger, and garlic; the green thai curry is my usual haphazard with lots of basil, lemongrass, ginger, garlic, and curry paste. Overall, very tasty, and a great pairing with the wine. I need to find a better way to plate my rice dishes though...
