Thai food is simply incredible the balance between sweet, spicy, salty and sour is what makes for the perfect dish. Some dishes are heavy on Tamarind, or peanuts while some rely on the creaminess of coconut milk. This recipe sings with the magic of Thai Basil. If you cannot find Thai Basil where you live, you could substitute regular basil as well.
Ive prepared the same dish before using Chicken Pad Kaprow Gai, but it was time for me to take Shrimp to the next level as well.
