Cyril Lignac Thai Salmon Broth Recipe

The end of the holiday is near, and this announces the arrival of the autumn season. If we miss drinking hot chocolate and wearing boots, it also portends the return of seasonal comfort food. After grilling and salads, make way for broths and other hot recipes that put balsamic at heart. However, we still dream about traveling, seeing ourselves on the edge of the beach, wandering the small food markets of Phuket and, in short, imagining ourselves well elsewhere. And what better than the kitchen to offer us a ride without leaving our little home. With all the specialties of the world, we have enough to treat ourselves to an extraordinary road trip. Our first destination? Thailand. Our culinary guide? Cyril Linnac. Thanks to Thai Salmon Gravy by Cyril LignacOur taste buds are in a trance state.
