This dish is better, the longer it is marinated.

The salt helps to remove a little of the moisture so firming the flesh.

Use basa, ling, halibut or conger eel as an alternate fish for this dish

Having a fridge clean, I added a chopped sweet pepper and a few celery sticks at the same time as the onions and garlic.

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
