Phar nung ma now : spicy lime/lemon fish

                 I have been craving for something spicy and healthy after my cough was gone.  I haven’t gone to the Asian grocery for over a month what am I going to eat!  After I opened my refrigerator and freezer I found tilapia, lemon and cilantro.  In my pantry I have garlic and in my garden I have fresh Cajun chili….Alright I will make my version of spicy lime fish by using the lemon instead of lime and fresh Cajun chili instead of fresh Thai chili.  It came out very good, the lemon worked beautifully with the fish and fresh Cajun chili because it is not too spicy (over powering) but spicy enough to make the dish tasty. Amm.. The more I talk the more my mouth is watering let’s get started…
