Method for Thai Spicy Catfish, 'Pad Ped Pladuk'

Combine the sauce ingredients.

In a wok get enough oil to shallow fry the fish smoking hot. Add the fish and stir until thoroughly coated with oil, then add the prepared sauce (carefull as it may splash). Stir fry for about 2-3 minutes, ensuring the fish doesn't stick to the pan and the pieces are all thoroughly sauced.

Remove to a serving dish and serve with steamed Thai jasmine rice and the usual Thai table condimentsas wekk as Thai chili powder and sugar.

Final caution: this cooks quite quickly--don't over cook it or the fish will become hard. It is cooked when you can pry the flesh from the central bone stem of the steak using the tip of a table knife without undue effort.

    This is a great and easy recipe. I added a single bird chile and it was very flavorful. I might add two next time I make this. I substituted raw sugar for the palm sugar. I'll have to look for palm sugar to see what difference it makes. I served it on coconut rice (long grain rice cooked with 1/2 cup of chopped shredded coconut)
