Fish Green Salad ( Lab Pa Nin Tod )


I might retake that photograph, since it's taken from such an ugly angle! This is a fried fish, topped with a spicy salad to add flavourings and texture.

500 gms Dace Fish
Oil for Deep Frying
1 Tablespoon Toasted Rice
1 Tablespoon Flaked Chillies
1 Tablespoon Fish Sauce
1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
1 Tablespoon Chopped Coriander
1 Tablespoon Chopped Mint
1 Tablespoon Chopped Spring Onion
1 Tablespoon Sliced Kaffir Lime Leaves
1 Tablespoon Crushed Garlic
1 Tablespoon Sliced Red Onion

1. This couldn't be simpler! Heat the oil to 180 degrees and deep fry the fish until cooked and a little crunchy on the outside. Drain and set aside.
2. Mix all the other ingredients together and top the fish with the salad, the fish sauce from the salad adds salt, so it's not necessary to add more.

What a great site! Thank you so much for these fantastic ideas. Keep up the good work.


This is the best thai food recipe site. I've tried a lot of your recipes and they all came out exactly like the food in Thailand, real authentic Thai food. I can never believe myself that I could cook that good. My husband has been telling people that I'm a great cook. Actually that's because of you, thanks a ton to you. But both me and my husband love to eat Boat Noodle (Kuay Tiew Ruea) but it's not on your website. I'd be really happy if you post it on your site. You'd make my day, really. Thank you.

[Appon]I'm add it to the list of todos.


Hi Appon,

Congratulations on a great site. I've just discovered it and look forward to trying some of your many tempting recipes.

I agree that the guy in the photo is perhaps not showing his best side (!) but the standard of photography on the site in general is very professional.

Could you share brief details of how you go about taking the photos? I would like to start keeping a record of my own cookery attempts and it would be nice to be able to do it with good quality photos.

TIA and Kind Regards,

I take them with a simple Olympus digital camera with a full spectrum light. That simple way seems to be the best way to photograph the food.


Thanks for the reply, Appon. Appon's Thai Food website looks set to become one of my favourite food sites. I'm looking forward to the opening of Appon's Thai Food Restaurant :-)
