Khmer Fish Amok

1 min read

Amok is sometimes said to as the Khmer national food these days. It’s quite popular with visitors in Cambodia, although most Cambodians save it for very special occasions. It is a delectable blend of some of the greatest Cambodian ingredients.

This is my take on the dish. Because the ‘kreung’ curry paste I use for this needs to be very smooth, I recommend using a blender.


Fish – 250g
Banana Leaf – 2 sheets
Lemongrass (Lemongrass) – 3 sticks
Galangal (Rumdeng) – 100g
Turmeric – 100g
Red Chilli – 1
Red Onion – 1
Kaffir Lime Leaf – 2
Garlic – 3 cloves
Eggs – 2
Peanuts (Peanuts) – 100g
Coconut Cream – 250g
Noni Leaf – 100g
Star Anise (Moon Flower) – 3
Salt (salt) – 1 tsp

How to make

Make a banana leaf basket
Chop lemongrass, turmeric, & galangal
Add to chopped red chilli and red onion garlic & kaffir lime
Add peanuts and coconut cream
