Thai Fish Parcels

Serves 4
by Tenina Holder

I am not sure where this recipe first originated, other than perhaps I made it for the steam oven, back in the old Kleenmaid days. (And I know it’s old because the pic is fairly sub standard. Sorry about that!)

SO here it is anyway, all pimped up and good to go in the Varoma. It maybe that this appears in my little self published book, Dinner Spinner, which will shortly be no more. When we run out of stock, we are not reprinting. Mostly because it needs a complete reshoot and also because now a lot of the recipes appear elsewhere. Of course the app Spin A Dinner will always be around. I couldn’t take it down if I wanted to! (It is also available on Android as well!)

In the meantime, enjoy this one. On me. It is quite delicious.
