Around Bangkok you will see a site like this: These beauties (called Pla Pao) are fish that have been salted and stuffed with fresh herbs. (lemongrass, anyone!?) If you like fish, you must buy one. For about $5 you can get a whole prepared fish and it will be the most delicious, moist, perfectly cooked fish of your life! The seafood sauce that comes with it is also delicious and I believe there were some herbs and glass type noodles that accompanied it as well.
If you want to try making this at home, here are two recipes:
