I know this dish has a funny name. That is because this dish uses the fried fish and is topped with a kind of vegetable and herb that makes it like the fish that gets caught in the garden!!! This dish is very healthy because it has fish and herb that is good for you.
This time I made this fish, because my friend invited me to her house and of course when Thai people get together we always remember to think about food!!! She told me that she got a whole red snapper (her husband went fishing and caught it himself) we decided to make this dish, since she got her fish then I brought my garden….
