This is a lovely fish dish I made last night for a dinner party which is a Thai dish. Excellent! From a Nita Mehta cookbook on Thai cookery. Time does not include marination time.

This was delicious! I am not always fond of fish but really liked this. My Sister and I prepared this as well as some other Thai dishes for Mom’s birthday. We used Tilapia. I think it may even go well for chicken!!
