This sounds really good. For where I live, Caesar dressing is not stocked in town, only in the city, but Italian dressing is stocked and can be made into Caesar dressing, win win. Links to the shortcuts are listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Low cost. With some planning, plan on a chicken dish that uses boiled shredded chicken, then you can make the stock for this by simply adding trinity when boiling the chicken, and use several tablespoons of the chopped chicken to make the soup with a shortcut.

Instructions
  1. Heat a non stick pan and add the curry paste. This is real, hand made red curry paste here, this is spicy stuff, basically, Bird's Eye chilies, black pepper, red onion, garlic, and lemongrass.
  2. Add the shrimp paste right after the curry paste. This is local made shrimp paste, shrimp and spices pounded in a mortar into a paste, very common ingredient in Thai cooking.
  3. Mix and cook for just a few minutes then add the shrimp and mix into the curry and shrimp pastes, the shrimp will release water, then add the clove basil and mix that in, stir fry until the clove basil is good and wilted.
  4. Serve, how easy was that? Good dishes to go with this is a Thai Omelet and rice.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 400 Baht for small white shrimp from Tesco, 2 kilos, removing the heads, peels and tails will give you about a kilo. Save all the scrap for shrimp stock later if you like and just freeze that. For 6 servings, this is about $1.97 per serving.

For the Salmon
For the Lime Sauce
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Heat your steamer, rice cooker or pot with a steamer insert.
  2. Rinse the salmon steaks, pat dry, and sprinkle salt on both sides. Divide the prepared vegetables for the Salmon into two parts. On a heat proof plate that will fit in your steamer, add one part of the veggies, place the salmon on top, place the second part of the veggies on top of the salmon. Top with the 3 remaining lime slices.
  3. When your steamer is hot, quickly, but carefully plate the plate in the steamer, a pair of steamer handles to lift the plate would be ideal. Cover and let steam for 5-10 minutes or until the salmon is just cooked through and flakes with a fork.
  4. While the salmon is steaming, prepare the lime sauce by mixing all the Sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
  5. When the salmon is cooked, quickly open the steamer and lift out the plate, pour out the water that collected on the plate, then pour the sauce over the salmon and place the plate back in the steamer for 5 more minutes.
  6. Remove from the steamer and serve.
Recipe Notes

For 69 Baht per fillet, this is about $2.03 per serving. High cost but I think ok for a once in a while, healthy meal.

  1. Lightly butter the slow cooker insert. Place chops in the slow cooker.
  2. Sprinkle chops with the ranch dressing mix.
  3. Pour the gravy over the top. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. Do not remove the lid before 6 hours, check for tenderness, if tender, serve, if not continue cooking until 7 or 8 hours.
  4. Serve with mashed potatoes and gravy from the slow cooker and a vegetable for a complete meal.
Recipe Notes

The pork chops I found at Tesco, thick cut, bone in, 250 grams each, were 160 Baht each making this about $4.70 per serving but these are so good I will make this once every 3 months, when I go to the city for my address report, I will look in Makro for these and the cost should be less. I will also test this recipe with just thick cut pork loin, which would make this a low cost meal.

Ingredients
Cheddar & Jalapeno Filling (for 2 burgers)
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Heat your grill to medium with either charcoal or gas. You will be cooking over indirect heat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the beef, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder, divide into 4 half pound balls. Place a beer can on top of a ball and push down and form the beef around the can and just a bit up the side. Wrap two slices of bacon the burger. Twist the can to remove that, the burger should have a nice deep indentation in it. Repeat this for the remaining balls. Season each indentation and the rest of the burger with ample salt and pepper to taste.
  3. For 2 burgers, add cubed Cheddar and Jalapeno slices in each indentation.
  4. For the 2 burgers with Bell Pepper, add the bell pepper and onion in each indentation then top each with a slice of Provolone.
  5. Grill the burgers over indirect heat, and covered, until cooked through, 30 minutes should be a medium burger.
  6. To serve, place lettuce and tomato on the bottom bun, place a burger on top, top with the top bun.
Recipe Notes

Beef will cost about 200 Baht/kilo. Cheddar about 180 Baht for 2 cups cubed, Provolone about 45 Baht for 2 slices. For 4 servings, this is about $3.13 per serving. Not cheap but sounds really good for a once in a while cookout with friends and family.
