Delicious Deep Fried Thai Fish

Deep Fried Thai Fish

We have been a year and a half residing in one of the village here in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

We have a good neighbor and friend who allows us to follow her when she goes to the Hyper market and also to the night market which is about 5 to 10 minutes drive from where we stay.

I love the locals lifestyle specially when it comes to their food. And at the night market, you can buy variations of food: Salads, fried stuffs, cooked meals and others.

My friend buys deep fried fish for her cats. The fish is meant for people to eat but her cats are like her kids, they eat deep fried fish aside from their regular cat foods.

The other day, I decided to buy one deep fried fish and when I got home I re-fried and garnished with tomatoes.
It was awesome delicious! I would love to share how simple the preparations is. Please read below. Thank you.
