Uses for thai dragon chiles

The farmer's market has a beatiful selection of thai dragon chiles that I couldn't resist. I have a recipe for an asian style ground meat dish and a vietnamese Shrimp and Glass Noodle Salad (Nigella Lawson) but I am looking for other recipesor uses for them. Thanks for your help.

  1. Is your recipe for larb? That and waterfall beef are easy, and you could use up the rest in nam prik that would last for a while.

    1. How about salted pickled chiles? They'll keep indefinitely in the fridge and you can use a spoonful in all sorts of recipes that call for some spice.

      Ideas for use of salted chilis:

      1. They are also known as 'prik kee noo'.

        The site has a lot of good recipes. There is a section covering ingredients, with links to recipes that use that ingredient, or you can just browse the recipes directly.

        1. Chop it up and add it to sweet soy sauce. Then use it as a condiment on whatever you want.
          Throw them into soups. I also like them in hot chocolate.
