Thai Steamed Fish

We’ve been doing some new things lately & today we’re sharing a superb recipe by @365daysrecipes who’s been one of our very loyal supporters 🙏. ⁠
Pla Gapong Neung Manao (Thai name for this dish 🇹🇭 ) is really easy to make yourself at home. It’s healthy too, as it’s steamed, then topped with a fragrant fresh salsa of hot chili, garlic, and coriander in a sweet sour lime juice. You can try this recipe using any filleted fish.
