Gaeng Tai Pla
Gaeng Tai Pla is a legendary recipe developed by people in the fishing communities of Southern Thailand. They wanted to find a way to use the fish guts rather than toss them out, so they developed a pickling process of the fish bladder. The pickled fish bladder (Tai Pla) is used to make this soup using a heavy dose of local spices and large chunks of dried fish meat.
Lately people all over Thailand crave the Tai Pla that comes from various regions, and packed in different brands.
