this recipe originally I got it from a friend’s mother. it’s easy to make and taste delicious. you can use red snapper fish, ask the shop to clean and cut in to batches for you….save you a lot of time.
2 pieces ginger
2 pieces turmeric
1 red snapper fish, clean, cut into batches
4 kafir lime leaves
400ml coconut milk
Saute all garlic, shallots, chillies, ginger, turmeric, and galanggal with oil. Add coconut milk cook until it boils then add the fish, lemongrass, tamarind, and kafir lime leaves. You probably need to add about 1 or 2 cups water (depend on how many fish you use), stirring occasionally, simmer until the fish is cooked.
note: i will post the picture later, as i forget to take a pic before it all gone!
