Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. In a large pot, add the chicken, skin on and bone in is perfect. Cover with 1 to 2 quarts of water, and if you want to make broth for use in other recipes, add 1 quartered onion, 1 roughly chopped carrot, and 1 stalk of roughly chopped celery (these are in addition to the ingredients listed) to the pot. Bring the pot to a boil then reduce to slow boil or high simmer, cook for 20 minutes or so until the chicken is cooked through.
  2. Remove the pot from the stove and allow to cool to room temperature, leaving the chicken in the broth, this results in juicer chicken. When the pot has cooled, remove the chicken to a cutting board, strain the broth and discard the vegetables. Jar the broth and place in the fridge until use, max is about 3 days in the fridge or you can choose to freeze it for later use.
  3. Remove any skin and bones and save for your dog. Now chop the chicken meat or just shred with your fingers. Add the meat to a mixing bowl.
  4. Ad the remaining ingredients to the mixing bowl and mix. Taste and season with salt and pepper as desired. Cover and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving.
  5. Serve on a bed of lettuce for a light lunch or dinner.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 60 Baht for the chicken, on the high side. For 4 servings, this is about 44 cents per serving.

Instructions
To Prepare the Salmon
  1. Ideally, you would want two 500 gram skin on fillets from the center cut of the fillet, remove the pin bones if that is not already done. But you can use the smaller fillets from Tesco, as what is in this photo. When I make this, I will use two of these fillets on the bottom, and two on top, just reduce the salt and sugar in equal proportions.
  2. Mix together the salt, sugar, and white pepper. Rub the mixture into both sides of the salmon fillets.
  3. Put half of the dill between the fillets, then divide up the remaining dill between the top and bottom, place in a ziplock bag and seal after removing as much as as you can. Place the bag in a backing dish and place a smaller dish on top and weight it down with some canned goods.
  4. Place in the fridge for 24 to 48 hours, flip the bag about every 12 hours.
  5. remove from the fridge and remove from the dish. Rinse the fillet very well with cold water, and use your fingers to rub off all the salt and dill. Dry the fillets with paper towels.
  6. Place a fillet skin side down on your cutting board, hold your knife at a angle and slice as thin as you can down to the skin but not through the skin. Repeat with remaining fillet or fillets.
For the Sauce (Gravlaxsås)
  1. Mix together the mustards and sugar, stir until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the vinegar.
  2. Using a mixer or food processor, very slowly add the oil, continuously mixing, start with just drops at first and when it binds (like making mayo), you can increase the amount of oil you are adding at a time. Season with salt and white pepper to taste. Mix in the dill.
  3. Serve with the sliced salmon as an appetizer on rye bread or with boiled potatoes for a lunch or dinner.
Recipe Notes

The salmon fillets I will use will be from Tesco, 69 Baht each for 140 to 160 gram fillets, frozen, from Norway. Initial test will be 4 fillets for a total of 276 Baht, about $8.40. I don't know the number of servings as an appetizer until I make this and I will update the pricing. For now I will say High Cost per serving.

Instructions
  1. In a large baking dish (glass, do not use metal), add the pork chops in a single layer, mix together the first 8 ingredients to make the marinade, pour over the pork chops and and flip them to make sure they are coated well. Place in the fridge for 6 to 8 hours, turning them once in a while.
  2. When you are ready to cook, heat a heavy pan on medium heat for two minutes, while the pan is heating, remove the pork chops from the marinade, set the marinade aside.
  3. Brush the pan with 1 teaspoon of olive oil, cook pork chops for 5 minutes on each side, pour in the marinade and reduce the heat to low, cover the pan and cook for 7 minutes, turning them once.
  4. Remove the pork chops and set aside. Turn the heat to medium and reduce the marinade until thickened then stir in the butter. Strain the sauce and pour over the pork chops.
  5. Serve with mashed potatoes and a vegetable.
Recipe Notes

I will have to price the pork chops next time I go to the store. This probably low cost.

Variant: Double the marinade for more sauce and to cover the chops better when marinating.

The mushroom part intrigued me with this recipe. I have made several recipes from this friend and I have to say, they are all spot on, as well as this one! I made this on 29 Oct 2017 and this is really good. I used small Shiitake mushrooms which will result in a browner appearance than using white button mushrooms.

Servings: servings as a side
Instructions
  1. For the mushrooms, white button mushrooms or white Shimeji give the best appearance, Shiitake, brown Shimeji, or Cremini will result in a browner appearance to the salad. If you have seen what the Thais cook, appearance is not a show stopper here, just as long as it tastes good. I used Shiitake with the stems removed and just sliced, not diced.
  2. Heat a large non stick pan on medium heat and add a splash of olive oil, when the oil is hot, add the mushrooms and saute for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown and no liquid is in the pan.
  3. Put the mushrooms in a large mixing bowl. Photo showing the browned mushrooms just before I took them out of the pan.
  4. Same pan, and another splash of olive oil, when the oil is hot, add the onion and saute for 10-12 minutes or until golden, then add in the garlic and cook for another minute and remove from heat.
  5. Add the onion, eggs, and dill to the mixing bowl and mix together to combine.
  6. In a small bowl, mix together the mayo, mustard, and lemon (lime) juice, stir the dressing into the salad until evenly coated, add more mayo if needed. Season with salt and pepper to your liking.
  7. Chill for several hours in the fridge before serving. Serve with a little bit of fresh dill sprinkled on top.

  1. For the rolls, you can use plain rolls like what is in Tesco and you would add thin pineapple slices, I would use fresh pineapple but canned is also ok. Link to the Hawaiian Rolls is listed in the recipe notes section, However, I have not tested that recipe yet.
  2. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Slice the rolls in half lengthwise, slice the entire package at one time, not individually. Place the bottom half in a 9x13 baking dish.
  3. Spread mayo on the layer of buns in the pan, top that with 2 layers of ham, followed by the cheese. Place the top layer of the rolls on the top. If using regular buns, ass 6 slices of pineapple on the top of the cheese, the top with remaining roll section.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter, onion powder, mustard, and poppy seeds. Brush the top of the rolls with the butter mixture. Cover with foil and let sit for 10 minutes. Bake for 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted, uncover and bake for another 2 minutes or until the top is golden brown and slightly crisp.
  5. Slice into individual sliders, serve, and watch your fingers!
Recipe Notes

I will say low cost for now until I make these, they do sound delicious!

Instructions
For the Casserole
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Butter 9x13 baking dish. Put the chicken evenly in the bottom of the dish, layer the ham, then sprinkle with the cheese. Set aside.
For the White Sauce
  1. Melt the butter in a medium size sauce pan over medium heat, once the butter is melted, add all the flour stir to make a thick roux, will look like thick paste.
  2. Once it is smooth and bubbly, slowly pour in the milk while whisking to make a smooth sauce. Continue to cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the sauce thickens.
  3. Whisk in the lemon juice, mustard, salt, paprika, and pepper. Bring the sauce barely to a boil then remove from heat and pour over over the cheese in the dish.
For the Topping

  2. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes or until the top is just starting to brown up. Let cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.
Recipe Notes

I will price this when I make it due to the amount of chicken needed, I will have to determine what that is. I will estimate low cost for now and will revise that after I make this.
