Lobster Khao Soi

At Sunda New Asian, which has locations in Chicago and Nashville, culinary director Mike Morales offers this dish based on a northern Thai noodle curry. He toasts ancho and guajillo chiles and blends them with shallots, garlic, ginger, turmeric, cumin and Madras curry to make a very aromatic paste. Then he adds coconut milk and to make a sauce out of it and finishes it with fish sauce.

He cuts out the underside of two lobster tails to make them easier for guests to eat, then dredges them in potato starch and fries them to golden brown. The lobster is tossed with rice noodles, the sauce, bean sprouts, string beans, and red onions and garnishes it with mint, cilantro, Thai basil, fried vermicelli noodles, and half a lime.
