Nhong fish is also a good topping for a salad. People mix Nhong fish to make Goi ca, Nhong fish salad. The key to a good plate of salad is hidden in the way of choosing a fish and making the sauce used with the salad. The fish must be fresh and cut into thin fillet. Before eating the fish, you need to squeeze the lime to get the juice covering the fish. Then, put the fish and some vegetables on a piece of rice paper and dip it into a tiny bowl of sauce. The sauce is a mixture of garlic, chilli, peanuts, lime juice, fish sauce and a little bit sugar.
