Khmer Krom @ Cambodian Grilled Chicken

This is the very first time I am trying the Cambodian cuisine. I actually came across this dish from Adam Liew's fb, the 2009 Australia Masterchef winner. I am so proud of this Malaysian guy. I have to admit that this is such an awesome dish, filled with all kinds of wonderful natural ingredients. And with the additional of lime juice, the flavouring became truly exotic.

I have to upload this favourite picture of mine, which taken two weeks back when driving home after a camping trip.Our mother nature is simply magnificent ! Isn't she ?

And here's what I did.
Ingredients :
5 pieces  chicken thigh, deboned
1 TB  fish sauce
2 lime, juiced
3 TB  brown sugar
1 tspn  salt
1 TB  crushed black pepper

Blended paste :
2 stalk lemongrass, sliced only the bottom
3 shallots, skinned
4 cloves garlic, skinned
5 slices  ginger
8 bird eye chilies
1/2 TB  turmeric powder
(put everything together and blend became smooth paste)

Method :
(1) mix all ingredients together except black pepper to marinade chicken, keep refrigerated overnight.
(2) place everything to a baking tray lined grease proof paper, sprinkle on the black pepper then bake at preheated oven 175'C for about 45 minutes or till nicely brown.

I normally prepare this kind of special dish when my boy is home. And he loves it so much. Hubby didn't complaint a single word. So, I guess its good ! LOL Hope you will love it too.
