16 slices sashimi-grade fluke, sliced thinly on the bias

16 cilantro leaves

32 chive tops

16 cooked sweet shrimp


1/4 cup nam plah fish sauce

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

1/4 cup shaved fresh cilantro roots*

1 cup shaved variety small chiles

*substitute 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro


  1. Lay the slices of fish over a cutting board. Roll 2 cilantro sprigs and two chive tops into four of the slices, so the tops of the herbs are exposed. You should have sixteen fish rolls that can be stood on end with the herbs coming out the top. Arrange the rolls and sweet shrimp on a chilled plate.
  2. Sauce: Combine the nam plah and lime juice in a small glass mixing bowl. Add the shaved cilantro, and steep for 2 minutes. Add the peppers and steep until desired flavor. Strain through a double cheesecloth. The longer the peppers steep, the hotter the sauce will become. Serve in small bowl as a dipping sauce.
