Salmon In Isan Lap Sauce ( Lap Bla Salmon )


Lap is classic Isan (North East Thailand), dressing and this is a nice way to eat salmon. Salmon can be so plain sometimes and this spicy dressing for it, really peps it up.

2 Pieces Salmon
1 Teaspoon Butter
2 Tablespoons Chopped Onions
2 Tablespoons Chopped Chillies
1 Tablespoon Chopped Coriander Leaves
1 Tablespoon Chopped Kaffir Lime Leaves
1 Tablespoon Toasted Sticky Rice
2 Garlic Cloves
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1 Tablespoon Fish Sauce
Mint Leaves

1. Clean the salmon and dry it with kitchen paper.
2. Put butter in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the salmon gently. It doesn't need to be cooked long, 30 seconds on each side is usually enough.
3. Remove the salmon from the heat and set aside.
4. Chop the garlic finely, and mix together with all ingredients in a saucepan. Heat for 30 seconds just to warm it through, then spoon over the salmon.

Serve With
Sticky Rice
Green Beans

I just made this... delicious! Thanks for such a fantastic site... I found it about 2 weeks ago, and I've cooked about 6 dishes from it already. Reminds me of when I was living in Bangkok last year!
