Note(s):

The Crispy Whole Fish with Thai Chili Sauce (Pla Lard Prik) is a classic Thai dish. I just love the crunchiness of the fish that goes so well with the sweet and spicy, tangy sauce that it is smothered with. The taste of this recipe of Pla Lard Prik is pretty spectacular.
You can use any kind of fleshy, cleaned whole fish such as stripped bass, red snapper, sea bream, and so on.
