So far this week. Greek style pork chops, marinaded and cooked over charcoal. Followed the next day by a rather large pile of calamari fritti. Delicious. Rib chops were large and around 85 baht e

For tonight we have a lovely piece of corned silverside.  Salt beef as it's known in the UK was always a family favourite when I was a boy. Hard to beat a good old fashioned boiled dinner with hot Eng

I most always broil fish anymore. 

 

Fast, easy, tasty, healthy and no mess.

sounds OK if ye got access to fresh firm fleshed sea fish steaks/fillets like snapper, tuna, swordfish, halibut, etc, just baste with a little olive oil and serve with some nice fresh salsa...the mushy, bony freshwater fish hereabouts from the rivers and the klongs I wouldn't feed to a cat...the locals usually make do with throwing the whole mess into a wok with some oil, ick...

 

'might taste better if ye tried steaming the fish with some chopped fresh herbs, garlic and onion, etc...' 'ye wanna do what??? (dese falangs sho' is clazy...)'

Where do you get fresh sea run fish the country. You can id you want frozen crap fish thawed out . I just eat salmon , and if lucky fresh barra. Most of the fish in makro are not fresh , and same as tops .I was a fishmonger in Australia for many years and have taught my wife what to look for when buying fish . I brought a vacuum machine from makro just for sous vide cooking and just use a thermometer

Unless you catch it yourself, most all ocean caught fish is frozen either on the boat or at the processor and thawed at the market.

I don’t like salmon, but I’ve gotten good halibut, sea-bass and swordfish at Macro.

It's crazy, except farmed fish like barramundi etc. almost every ocean fish in Thailand is more expensive than in Europe.

Nowt wrong with a nice Tilapia fresh from the pond. A 2kg fish gives some nice fillets for making fish & chips, or salt-baked with a nice chilli dipping.

I've heard a lot of good things about tilapia but can't seem to find none anywhere...anyone got the thai word (or the transliteration) for tilapia? from the photos on google looks to have the same firmness of sea fish...the inlaws go fishin' in the local klongs and what they bring back is junk but the family loves it...

 

we were in Abu Dhabi and the wife went home to Thailand for a spell and when she returned her suitcase was fulla little bite sized silver dollar fishes from the klong wrapped up in newspaper...I LMAO and her and her countrified thai girlfriends had a feast...excellent fish in both the Gulf and the Red Sea but she wasn't that interested except for the mackeral...
