Cambodian Curry Catfish, Jasmine Rice, Chinese Long Beans

In honor of Cambodian New Year, we are featuring favorite dishes by Chef Pieter's amazing wife, Susan Sypesteyn. This is how the Sypesteyn crew eats at home, celebrate the new year with them!

Join Chef and Susan on Instagram Live at 3pm | 4.17.2020 to follow this recipe step by step.

Special Notes: We Recommend that you prepare this Catfish Curry Dish first, along with the steamed Jasmine Rice and Chinese Long Beans. The Jasmine Rice recipe makes enough rice for BOTH meals. When steamed rice is finished cooking, reserve half of it in refrigerator until ready to prepare the Fried Rice. Fried Rice comes out best when using cold, left-over rice.
