It’s rainy season and there are plenty of fishes to be catch from the rivers and streams. For those living in the city and don’t have the time to go catch the fish themselves, then there are plenty to be found at the local markets around town.

For dinner tonight, my two aunts in Vientiane got some fresh fishes from a relative that came by the house for a visit. They decided to make Minced Fish Salad (Koy Pa; ກ້ອຍປາ) and Fish Soup (Kaeng Pa ແກງປາ) using a couple of fishes.

They also added a couple of side dishes to the meal and served plenty of warm sticky rice on the table.
