The English have excellent fish and chips that are breaded and deep fried and not very healthy, but maybe that’s what they need with the cold, wet weather they have to endure.

Why do you want to make this recipe

  • Absolutely delicious.
  • It is very easy to follow
  • Be quick.
  • A good sweet and sour mango salad to balance out the fish.

Here in Thailand we know a thing or two about fried fish, and usually it is without much batter. At least, in this recipe that’s not the case.

To fry fish, choose the right fish and bring the oil up to the right temperature to get succulent but well-cooked fish meat with a slightly crispy crust on the outside.

And then combine that beautiful, slightly crispy exterior and soft interior with a lightly salted, spicy fish sauce to bring out the flavor of the fish.

But wait, we Thais love sweet and sour as part of the flavor of a perfectly balanced dish. The fish sauce is therefore a little sweet, and the mango salad provides the perfect freshness and acidity to finish off this wonderfully delicious dish.

This dish takes almost no time to prepare and is simple in structure. It just takes a little preparation time and some knowledge of what you want to do and accomplish.

Preparation of Krapong Tod Nam Pla with mango salad step by step

Fish fry

Lightly salt the exposed surfaces of the sea bass before frying.

Step 1 Seabed preparation

Get a super fresh whitefish with a good amount of meat to cook and ask the fishmonger to remove the guts and scale the fish so it’s fairly flat.

Remove the scales and lightly trim the fins, then rinse thoroughly.

Sea bass is a good choice because it has enough meat on it to keep it juicy and tasty.

Step 2: Zoning of fish

Roughly dry the fish, then sprinkle with a little salt on both sides, pat the flesh and expose the skin. The salt helps crisp up the exposed surfaces of the fish and adds extra spice.

Step 3 Bring the oil up to temperature

Get a deep, relatively high side pot, big enough for the fish to sleep on the tip of its tail without curling up too much on the sides. Fill the pan with enough frying oil to completely submerge the fish and heat until the surface begins to ripple.

You should notice a marked change from a flat, smooth surface to a slightly hazy oil surface. Do not heat the oil to the point where it begins to smoke, be careful with this.

And be careful with a pan full of very hot oil, as it can be very dangerous if you spill.

Step 4 Bar Fry / Pla Krapong

Take the fish and dip the head into the oil for about 1-2 minutes to begin the cooking process. This is necessary because the head is thicker and more compact than the rest of the fish and takes longer to cook and crisp.

Then submerge the fish completely and adjust the temperature so that the oil is very hot, but not steaming.

Let the fish cook gently for about 8 to 10 minutes.

Step 5 Switching to cooking on the other side

Carefully turn the fish over with a knife or tongs, being careful not to burn your fingers or splash the oil. Hot oil burns quickly and is difficult and painful to remove. Very much so.

Cook the fish on the other side in 5 to 7 minutes.

Step 6 Remove excess oil

Remove the fish with a perforated disk and drain the oil by shaking gently. Place the cooked fish on a plate with a paper towel to absorb the excess oil.

Make Nam Pla

Cooking nam pla with palm sugar for a perfect sauce.

Step 1 Make Nam Pla

Add two tablespoons of the oil in which you fried the fish with the soy sauce, fish sauce and palm sugar and heat while stirring until the sugar has dissolved.

Add a few tablespoons of pure water to thin the sauce a bit, turn off the heat and set aside.

Step 1 dressage

Place the fish sauce and palm sugar in a medium bowl and stir to dissolve the sugar. If your stove is cold, it’s easier to warm the liquid a bit beforehand. Add the lime juice and stir.

Step 2 Add herbs

Add the shallots and chilli as directed in the recipe, then julienne the mango and add to the mixture.

Mix all the ingredients together and decorate the dish with a few coriander leaves.
