“Ba taptim nung manau dong”. Steamed pomegranate fish on a pickled lime sauce. (“may pet” / not hot)
You can eat this dish in every region of Thailand. It is very delicious and not very spicy. It is served with white rice and a lot of vegetables. Pomegranate fish is sold on fresh markets alive every day, so you don’t have to worry about the freshness. It is a freshwater fish and mostly grown in fish farms. Some farms use a lot of medicine to help the growth of the fish, that is why I would not eat it every day. In my own lake, I don’t use any chemicals.
People like to eat this fish a lot here. It is sold in the market for around two dollars a kilo. In restaurants, not fancy ones, you will find it for about 3 to 4 $. For two adults one big fish should be enough. Don’t forget to eat the cheeks, they are delicious.
Was this of any help to you?
