Zeasty and truly Thai fish recipe

Top Review by Spablue

Beautifully simple, wonderfully tasty. I made this basically the same as the recipe except for using a fresh chilly on place of the chilly powder and rocket lettuce instead of the mint, as I thought the mint might be a bit over powering. Will certainly be doing this again.
