Khmer Silver Fish Mum

This Cambodian Silver Fish Salad recipe is like any Khmer Mum you need to make sure to adjust the salt to your taste if it too much salt it won’t get sour and if not enough Mum will be spoil. What I do is I often take a taste for the saltiness before I put it in the jar.


1 bag of tiny silver fish or tiny shrimps
1/3 cup of minced Galangal
1/3 cup of roasted rice
2 tablespoon of salt use American measuring spoon (do adjust the salt)
2 cups of shredded green papaya
1 cup of shredded carrot
1 teaspoon of tamarind powder

Directions to make Khmer Silver Fish Mum

  1. Mix everything well together put it into a clean jar and let it sits for a week, I keep it outside for 1 day then I keep it in the fridge for later use. It will sour fast depend on where you live with warm weather.
  2. When ready to serve add minced garlic, minced chilies, lime juice and assorted herbs serve with green fresh vegetable.

Serve with rice.
