  • Cá Nục kho lá quế ,cà chua & dứa by Jane Smith

    By Jane Smith :


    * fresh American mackerel, gutted and gilled
    * ripe tomatoes
    * ripe pineapple
    * green onion, yellow onion, garlic
    * fresh basil leaves
    * reconstituted noodles
    * lime & hot pepper


    ** do the noodles first, let them drained well.
    ** marinate the mackerel, cut into two or three, one fish minimum per eater, with fish sauce, sugar.
    ** saute' sliced yellow onion & garlic with a small amount of canola oil until fragrant; then add cold water (or diluted chicken broth) enough for the meal (= 3 - 4 4oz ladles per person)
    ** bring to boil, add sliced pineapple, then wedges of tomatoes without seeds
    ** add the fish, throw away the marinate
    ** taste for salt; use fish sauce to adjust the saltiness
    ** As soon as the fish JUST COOKED, ie. 5 - 7 minutes after returning to boil;

    off the heat; add saute' shallot & basil;

    assemble the bowl with noodles in the bottom, chunks of fish, tomatoes, pineapple, freshly teared basil leaves; wedge of lime & chili pepper.

    Use fish sauce side dish for dipping.

    Cold beer or ice tea as chaser!

    Listerine or Scope (tm) as a must, afterward!
