Thai Basil Fish 【泰式塔香鱼块】

I always planted some Thai basil every summer, it is an essential ingredient in Thai dishes, which I love could also be used for some Taiwanese dishes like Salt fried Chicken (盐酥鸡) and 3 cups chicken (三杯鸡).

My Thai basil has grow well as usual for this year, and we have got some fresh salmon at home, so I made this delicious fish dish for lunch!



350-400 gm Salmon (cut into pieces, marinates with pepper powder and a little salt for 10 minutes)
1-1 1/2 cup of fresh Thai basil leaves
3-4  Thai chilies slice (use any other chilies for less heat)
2-3 clove of garlic (skinned and sliced)
1/2 medium size onion (thinly sliced)

2-3 tsp Fish sauce (or soy sauce)
1 tsp Oyster sauce
1/2 tsp brown sugar/palm sugar
1 tbsp or 1/2 lime squeeze out the juice (Lemon juice works too

350-400 克 三文鱼 (切成块状,用一点胡椒粉和盐腌10分钟)
1-1 1/2 杯 九层塔叶子
3-4 根 泰国朝天椒切段 (不嗜辣用青椒或者任何其他不太辣的辣椒代替)
2-3 瓣 蒜瓣 (去皮切片)
1/2 只 洋葱 (切丝/切圈)
2-3 小勺 鱼露 (或酱油代替)
1 小勺 蚝油
1/2 小勺 红糖/椰糖
1 大勺 或半只青柠挤出来的青柠汁 (也可以用柠檬汁代替)

Shallow fry the fish pieces until golden in color.

Leave about 2 tbsp of oil in the cooking pan, stir in sliced garlic, onion and chilies, when it is fragrant, add the fish pieces and all the seasoning with 1/4 cup of water, bring to boil and cover with lid, cook for 2-3 minutes or until it reaches desire sauce consistency.

Turn off the heat and add Thai basil leaves, mix well, and it is ready to serve!

I think steamed rice and  this fish dish are perfect for each other!
