Thai Inspired Poached Kingklip

Kingklip Recipes | 31st August 2016 | By

On our honeymoon my husband and I travelled to the most gorgeous little island of Koh Samui, in Thailand. On one of our evenings exploring the island night life, we stumbled upon a restaurant (or should I say a giant hall with trestle tables and an open cooking station). With a name like “Ninja Crepes” we didn’t really know what to expect, but the hall was packed so we decided to give it a try. The food was out of this world with flavours and aromas I can only begin to describe. Ninja Crepes was definitely one of the highlights of our trip, one which we still talk about regularly… our trip into this dodgy “school hall” in the middle of the streets in Thailand, only to eat the best meal of our lives!

So with that in mind, I tried to reinvent the flavours I discovered that night. Simple flavours of coconut, lemongrass and coriander! Enjoy.
