Yum Bacon

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes


Try one of our favorite fusion Thai dishes, a Thai-style salad with crispy bacon and a spicy, sweet, savory Thai sauce!


  • 10 slices of bacon of your choice (we like thick-cut)
  • juice from 2 limes
  • 12 tsp. sugar
  • 12 tbsp Fish Sauce
  • 23 tbsp. Thai Chile Paste (Prik Pao)
  • 25 Thai chilies finely chopped
  • 2 shallots, sliced into strips
  • 5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • handful of coarsely chopped cilantro


  1. Make the bacon whatever way you prefer whether it’s baking it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, microwaving it about 1 minute per slice, or cooking it on the stove top.
  2. Once bacon is cooked (I prefer it crispy for this dish), chop it up into bite-sized pieces as show in pictures in post.
  3. While bacon is cooking, wisk in a medium bowl the lime juice, sugar, fish sauce, thai chili paste, Thai chilies, shallots and garlic. Add the bacon and sprinkle cilantro on top.
  4. Eat it with jasmine rice, and we like it with a Thai-Style Omelette too!
  5. Enjoy!


Yum is translated from Thai to English as “salad”, but it’s not really what Americans would picture as a salad, but that’s because we don’t have a better word to describe it. Yum in Thai can mean a room temperature protein that is mixed with herbs and shallots with a sauce base of fish sauce, lime juice, sugar, Thai chilies and garlic.
