Nah Gkin! (Looks Good to Eat!)
This is a picture of three fish being grilled in Nong Kai in Northeastern Thailand (Isahn). Prior to grilling, they have been stuffed with an herb mixture and then the (unscaled) fish is covered with salt. The result is a succulent, moist fish with herb flavor that is simply delicious.
One of the great joys of traveling in Thailand is going to the open-air and local markets. One of the joys of going to the markets is seeing all kinds of appetizing and wonderful food that you never knew existed.
Kasma teaches her version of this recipe as Charcoal-Grilled Salt-Encrusted Fish Stuffed with Crushed Herbs, Served with Hot Thai Chilli-Lime Sauce (Bplah Yad Sai Samunplai Pao) in her evening Advanced Series Set E (class 1) and in Weeklong Advanced Intensive C (day 5).
