My relatives invited me for lunch and I was treated to one of my favorite Lao Food dish, Tilapia Fish Wraps (Pun Pa Nin; ພັນປານິນ; ໝ້ຽງປານິນ ).
The farmed Tilapia fish was stuffed with herbs such as lemongrass, dill, galangal, and kaffir lime leaves. It was then seasoned with salt and cooked on charcoal grill. There were vegetables, herbs, noodles, and dipping sauce to wrap the fish into bite size pieces.
It was a nice feast for me sharing Fish Wraps with my relatives and their neighbors. I had an entire big fish to myself as special guest of the house but I couldn’t finish it all. My cousins were more than happy to help me clear my portion.
