I was walking home a few weeks ago and saw a sign for new herring season. I decided to make laap herring for dinner that night since I had some herbs on hands. I used too much lime juice but it was a good meal. I tried to explain to my two aunts in Vientiane what herring taste like and took some photos for them. It’s a pity that there is no herring for them to try in Laos because for some reason I think they would enjoy the fish as much as me.
