Prahok Kh'tih

Image of Prahok Kh

150g fresh fish
cup minced pork
1 tbsp prahok
cup coconut cream
cup coconut milk
cup water
4 cloves garlic, sliced
4 shallots, sliced
2 cubanelle peppers, julienned
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
⅓ cup combo of saw mint, basil and spring onion


Place coconut cream and coconut milk in a large pot over a medium-high heat and bring to the boil. Once bubbling add minced pork, stirring constantly to prevent it sticking together in lumps. Boil for 15 minutes or until well cooked, then add prahok, water, salt and sugar. Slice the fish, add to the pan and cook without stirring 15 more minutes, before adding shallots, garlic and cubanelle peppers. Before serving, garnish with saw mint, basil and spring onion. This dish is eaten as a cold dip with fresh vegetables, such as purple eggplant, cucumber, banana blossom and water grass.
