Usually when we are talking about stir fries we usually associate them with the Chinese cuisine but do you know that the Thai version is even better as it uses almost all flavour profiles namely sweet, sour, salty and spicy hot.

Next to Japanese we love the Thai cuisine the ingredients and flavours is just a perfect match to our palates, it’s nearly similar to the Philippine stir fries just hotter. The ingredients are nearly the same due to the fact that we have tons of seafood and tropical vegetables available in our markets. Today we will be making a mixed seafood stir fry where we combine different seafood like scallops, squid, prawns, fish and even crab balls with vegetables in a Thai inspired sauce. A real crowd pleaser and very appetizing thanks to those hot chillies it makes you have some more.
