How to cook: Fried fish with spicy tamarind sauce (pla rad prig)

By itself, fried fish does not excite me. But pair fried fish with a good sauce and I get an adrenalin rush.

We had a pack of bangus (milkfish) belly fillets in the freezer and it was the fastest thing to thaw for lunch today. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with it, we’re out of fresh vegetables except for the basics and the potted herbs that Speedy has been monitoring, oh, so closely these days. I browsed the web a bit combining “fish” with different keywords, I landed on a website called Thai Table and I found the perfect recipe for my bangus belly fillets. »
