Lemongrass Fish (trout, tilapia, or any white fish)

Lemongrass is one of the most flavorful herb and medicine use in Asia country. Lemongrass work for any kind of meat, fish or fresh salad, I use lemongrass for many of fish curry dish or just grill fish, and the flavor is very good with any kind of fresh pickle or salad.

1to 2 trout clean, cut shallow, diagonal slits on both side for the marinate to get inside the fish.

1 to 2 stalk of lemongrass thinly sliced, white part only,
3 cloves of garlic
3 shallots
1 to 2 Thai chilies for spicy (optional)
1 thumb size galangal, thinly sliced
3 lime leaves thinly sliced
1 T of sugar
1 to 2 T of fish sauce

In a mortar and pestle pound the lemongrass, garlic, shallots, galangal, chilies, lime leaves to paste

In a large bowl marinade the fish with the lemongrass paste add sugar fish sauce and marinated for few hours.

Grill or fry the fish until golden brown take it out let cool
Serve with Khmer Jrouk Spey, green mango salad, green tomato salad and so on…with rice
