1 eggplant,cut into pieces
1/2 tbsp chopped garlic

1/2 tbsp fish sauce
1/2 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tbsp tom yam paste
1 tbsp chilli paste
1 1/2 tbsp lime/lemon juice
80 ml thick coconut milk.

Heat up 1 tbsp oil, saute chopped garlic until fragrant.
Add in spices, lady's finger, eggplant and water.Cover and cook for 3 minutes.
Add in all the seasoning except lime/lemon juice .
Add in fish head,cover and cook for 3 minutes.
Lastly add in coconut milk and cook for 2 minutes.

Cindy, your fish looks delicious, but my husband will not eat fish head therefore I rarely cook fish head at home.
Have a great week ahead :-)
