Savoring fish with spicy coconut curry sauce and eggplant is authentic Khmer food. One of the recipes that my family always cook during New Year celebration week. Back home, we cook fish curry with mainly snakehead fish (trey tok), catfish (trey naing) or basa fish. But any kind of fish that you prefer will work with this recipe. It is one of the best Asian recipes in South East Asia. Cambodian people like  to prefer cooking this kind of food for serving their family and friends. Let’s start to make Fish Curry with me.
