A hot and pungent Brussels Sprout Salad with authentic Thai flavors and egg.
By Caroline Phelps
After living in Bangkok off and on for about a year and tasting so many different flavor combinations, I was convinced only Thai people could make excellent Thai food – it looked so complex and intimidating! But as long as I lived somewhere in Asia I was able to find good, solid Thai food. And as I traveled around I dug deeper and deeper into Asian cuisine and their superb preparations. I was spoiled with amazing food every single day!
If you told me a few years ago that I would be able to whip up something like this Thai egg and Brussels sprout salad, I would have called you crazy.
This recipe for Thai egg and Brussels sprout salad popped into my head after seeing family and friends devour my Brussels Sprouts with Maggi Seasoning dish at our last gathering.
With that in mind I added a fried egg, some fresh herbs and made a quick dressing with Thai chiles, garlic, fish sauce, sugar and lime juice. I wanted to add a nice pop of color so I dropped a few cherry tomatoes and just like that, a Thai egg and Brussels sprout salad was born. Hot, pungent and salty with hints of sweetness from the cherry tomatoes and red onion… This salad has it all. It’s also pretty filling yet is still light and refreshing!
If you are looking for a completely unique way to present Brussels sprout to your dinner table, look no further – this recipe has your name written all over it. And if I can make Thai food like this, believe me, you can too!Print
