I always planted some Thai basil every summer, it is an essential ingredients in Thai dishes, which I love dearly...it 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 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）
Part of the ingredients：
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!
