Notes about this recipe

  • MikeCirillo on September 12, 2016

    This is an interesting recipe; instead of lemon providing the sour as in most fish recipes in this taramind provides the same effect. This has a nice combination of southeast Asian flavors, hot from chili peppers (I just just substituted crushed red pepper for fresh), sour *tamarind) and salty (fish sauce). It says it should be made with sticky rice but we had it with boiled, buttered new potatoes and it was delicious. My wife and I both loved it. The fried garlic was so good I think I should make a batch and put in on just about anything I eat! I had lemon grass growing in a herb garden and I keep other Asian ingredients in the pantry and fridge so that helped of course!
