From the Yahoo site. I'm saving it to make when we start to catch plenty of fish around June.

Wow -- this was really exotic and delicious! Only used 1 pound of fish (haddock); really would have benefited from the full 1-1/3 pounds, so don't shortchange unless you have to. Also couldn't get palm sugar or Vietnamese mint, living where I do (the back of beyond), so made appropriate substitutions. A little squirt of Sriracha sauce, and voila! Will certainly make this again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine fish stock, fish sauce, palm sugar, garlic and 2 cups water in a large saucepan. Heat and simmer for 5 minute.
  2. Add fish and cook for 3-5 min, until the fish is just cooked through.
  3. Stir in tomato, chillies and lime juice. Cook for 1-2 min, or until tomato is soft. Season to taste and garnish with Vietnamese mint, coriander and bean shoots.
