25. Plah Plow
A popular fish to eat with som tam and sticky rice is plain grilled and salted fish.
The fish is firstly stuffed with lemongrass, lime leaves and other ingredients for flavor, and then rolled in a thick coat of salt. It is then grilled, never overcooked, to juicy perfection.
The result is a soft sweet white meat fish that literally liquefies in your mouth. Chewing is almost unnecessary.
Plah plow is made with all kinds of fish including snake head fish, tilapia and snapper.
