Bplaa naaem (ปลาแนม) is an aristocratic small plate of grilled fish, roasted rice and roasted grated coconut with bitter orange zest and a three sours seasoning sauce – an evocative dish that brings to life the vivid flavors and atmosphere of a classic snack break for the Siamese aristocracy. It’s a meticulously prepared dish that deploys a variety of ingredients. The best way to describe bplaa naaem is with a culinary cliché: it melts in your mouth.

In Siam, cold dishes of various acid cured or cooked meats, especially pork (หมูแนม ; muu naaem), fish (ปลาแนม ; bplaa naaem) and shrimp (กุ้งแนม ; goong naaem) were once exceedingly popular.
