BBQ Fish ( Bla Pow )


As summer arrives in the northern hemisphere, so do the barbecue recipes! When I was a child, we would go fishing and barbecue our catch right there next to the river. We'd season with lemon grass and kaffir, which grew next to the river and only the sauce would be pre-prepared.

Ginger Fish ( Bla Nueng Kin Dong )


Fish is a good healthy dish, and this is a simple way to prepare it. Steam it with ginger & thyme, the flavours from the ginger go into the fish and help neutralize any 'fishy' smells as a bonus.

500 gms Sea Fish
120 ml Light Soy Sauce
50 gms Mushroom
20 gms Pickled Ginger
10 gms Thyme Leaves

1. Scale & gut the fish. Your fishmonger can do this for you, but it's easy enough to scale a fish by scraping a knife backwards over the skin.
2. Place the fish in a suitable metal bowl, pour the light soy over it, add the ginger and thyme and mushrooms.
3. Steam for 15 minutes.
4. Serve with rice.
