My Thai friend, Tamalin, told me that Thai people never flip a whole fish after eating through one side. You’re supposed to carefully remove the bones and continue eating from the same side as superstition says that flipping the fish will cause fishermen to flip their boats! All I know is that you’ll flip after trying this incredibly moist and flavorful dish.
