The national dish of Cambodia is Amok trey (Coconut curry fish). Why not make it on November 9 when Cambodia celebrates their independence day. Here’s what our country chef Keo says about the national dish of Cambodia:
Amok is a coconut curry, gently steamed in banana leaves and is considered by many to be the national dish of Cambodia. It’s usually made with fish, but chicken, tofu and even snails are used as the main protein source.
