Canned Fish Salad Thai Style – Yum Pla Grapong

This is one of the easiest Salads in Thai kitchen. For a long time, these canned Fish is the food for the poor or the students, but nowadays we make so much of it that it is no longer considered that way anymore. Canned Fish comes with tomato Sauce, but despite the good taste of it, Thai people add herbs and Chili to make it to their liking. The best ingredient in this dish is fresh Thai herbs like lemon grass, lime leave and mint. The herbs are believed to release gas from the stomach. You can add the chili as cut pieces or as a whole. The best way to taste Thai Chili is to eat them whole. But for those of you who don’t eat that spicy, cut pieces will be easy on your stomach.
