It's time for some sour and spicy dish to whet the palate after consumimg so much sweet meats and high calorie food over the past few weeks ...... 'Tomyam steam fish'




Very basic ingredients - Tomyam paste, bunga kantan, big onion and kaffir leaves ...ooops, forgot to bring in the bird eye chillies for the picture.


Used a generous cut of fish tail end, dressed it up with all the 'paraphernalia', and into the hot pot of boiling water, it goes .................


Transformed -  add a sprinkling of finely chopped kaffir lime leaves.



I like this part very much, the muscles and it's chewy!


You're welcome to join me for dinner ..... quick serve the white rice!

    Yes,but then sometimes unknowingly you'll end up with fish that's got a very tough skin and the fish will curl up!
