Being cheap and easily available, mackerel is a preferred fish of choice in many Thai fish dishes. Much of the mackerel in Bangkok hails from the south-western Samut Songkhram province, a place that loves its mackerel so much that there is even a festival to commemorate it. An oily fish, the mackerel lends its flavour to the accompanying salad ingredients, which means seasoning can be kept to a minimum. Enjoy this popular street food dish as a light lunch.
