Top Ten Khmer Foods: #7 Ginger Fish
7) Ginger Fish
This is a super-simple dish that I’ve seen done deliciously with eel, fish, chicken, and wild boar. I like fish the best because the flaky white flesh of the Cambodian river fish seems to go perfectly with the deep fried ginger and scallions. It’s a simple stir fry that throws all its eggs into one basket — into the ginger basket, to be precise. The best versions include some fresh chopped bird chilis and have enough sauce to spoon over your piping hot white rice.
