Hor Mok (Steamed Red Curry Cake) ห่อหมกมาแล้วจ้า
Today I tried a Hor Mok (Steamed red curry cake with salmon in banana leaf) recipe from my mom. This is a family recipe, that we got from our relatives, that has been used for generations in Chon Buri province. Thai people like to use white fishes such as snapper, snakehead fish (ปลาช่อน), tilapia (ปลานิล), grouper, red snapper.
Since we live in South Florida, there are always plenty of good seafood choices. I like to get fresh seafood from a local seafood market, but today we got fresh salmon from Costco.
I tried to make this as close as I could to what they make in Thailand so I started by making bowls from banana leaves to serve the Hor Mok . If you don’t have banana leaf, you can use a ramekin also. Then put fresh Thai sweet basil and sliced cabbage on the bottom.
I think I will add this to my Thai cooking classes in the future. Aroi maak maak!
