I use mahi-mahi fillet for this fish curry laksa or you can use salmon fillet if you like, those type of fish is good to use in curry or soup.




The saltyness from fish sauce no need to add salt in this laksa, but if you do, you can add more salt or fish sauce, Served on rice noodles,vermicelli or any cooked noodles is best.
