Spicy Catfish Salad ( Lab Bla-Dukg )


Recall 'Lap/Lab' is a Thai spicy salad dish. You can 'lab' almost anything, this variation is the flesh of a catfish made into a lab salad.

200 gms Catfish or Larger
1 Tablespoon Sticky Rice
2 Tablespoons Fish Sauce
1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
1 Tablespoon Sliced Garlic
1 Teaspoon Flaked Chillies
1 Tablespoon Chopped Coriander
1 Tablespoon Chopped Spring Onion
1 Tablespoon Sliced Kaffir Lime Leaves

1. Dry fry (toast) the sticky rice until brown.
2. Pound the rice to a powder.
3. Grill the catfish until cooked, remove the flesh and mince it with a fork.
4. In a saucepan, place the mince with all the other ingredients.
5. Warm through, while stirring for 2-3 minutes, just to meld the flavours.
6. If you like spicy food you can chop some fresh chillies and add them after you remove it from the heat.

Serve With
Salad Vegetables
Steamed Sticky Rice
Fragrant Rice

Hello Appon,

Thank you for all your recipes. How great to see this recipe!! I just arrived home from Thailand and it was on this trip that I discovered the wonderful taste of Lab Pad Dug, which I ate for lunch many times with Som Tum. Aloy mak mak!

Thanks again :)
