These are used along with curry past, biachan, nam prik, and nam pla to flavor various dishes. A lot of seafood is used in Thai dishes, whether it's simply a meat dish or an elaborate salad made for the main course.

Thai salads are different from their Western counterparts. They are made up of a wide variety of ingredients and prepared to have a great presentation and flavor. Thai cooks combine colors, flavors and aromas to give the best and most pleasurable eating experience.

Exotic fruits are found in Thailand and are commonly eaten by just removing the skin. Tropical fruit varieties can be found throughout the year, some examples of the luscious fruits are the lychee, durian and mangosteen.
