Baked Citrus Fish ( Bla Op Samoon Prai )


These fish steaks are baked in Thai herbs including lemon grass, and Kaffir lime leaves, giving a citrus taste to the fish. You can eat the herbs too, in Thailand we eat these herbs because they are good for digestion.

30 gms Chopped Coriander Leaves
5 Kaffir Lime Leaves
3 Garlic Cloves
1 Teaspoon Black Pepper Corn
2 Tablespoons Fish Sauce
2 Tablespoons Light Soy Sauce
1/4 Teaspoon Sugar
Tin Foil
1 Tablespoons Oil

1. Clean the fish and place on the tinfoil.
2. In a Thai mortar, pound the garlic with black peppercorns, lemon grass, coriander, and kaffir leaves, until well ground up. Add the fish sauce, light soy sauce, sugar and oil in together pound a few more times to mix.
3. Spoon onto the fish, wrap the tinfoil up to keep the juices in and bake in the oven 190 degrees for 25 minutes.
