A lady chills on a platform surrounded by plastic buckets of iced seafood in the humid market in Cambodia: fish, eels, stingray, water snakes, prawns, cockles– a sea of protein.
The Mekong River is the largest supplier of protein in the region with over 1,100 species of fish. Mekong is second in its bio-diversity only to the Amazon River!
Hence, the menu in Cambodia is filled with seafood inspirations. Whenever you visit, you may want to try their fermented fish paste (prahok), fish curry (amok), and sweet and sour fish soup (samlor machu trey).
