How to cook… Fried Pomfret

This is a nice simple dish called Fried Pomfret, or “pla jalamet khao tod” in Thai. In the picture below, you can see the pomfret fish and the tapioca flour.

Wash and clean the fish and then scour it on both sides. Next rub in the tapioca flour. Heat up some deep oil in the pan and when hot enough, fry the fish on both sides until golden brown. Serve with fresh vegetables and a dip made from hot chillies, shallots and an equal amount of lime juice and fish sauce. Come back to next week for another Thai Food Blog.
