Chargrilled eggplant and pork

This quick recipe is a favourite in Cambodia. Both sweet and salty, it’s a satisfying dish. 

Beef lok lak

This delectable recipe relies on a variety of sauces to get its intense flavouring. If you don’t have access to Cambodia’s world-famous Kampot Pepper, you can substitute with normal pepper (sigh).

Pineapple rice

'Wow' your household members and Instagram friends with this recipe that is served in halved pineapples. We are salivating just thinking about it! 

Prawn amok

Arguably the most famous dish for visitors to Cambodia, you can make amok with chicken, fish, tofu or in this case, prawn. This coconut curry is one you will be craving for months to come!

Rice paper rolls

The great thing about these is that you can be very flexible with the ingredients, and it can easily become a vegetarian main course.

Coconut shrimp soup

Any recipe that involves coconut milk is a winner in our eyes!
