  1. Blanch fish for about 5 minutes in boiling stock, then remove from heat and drain, keeping both the stock and the fish.
  2. In a large pan, bring stock to boil again. Add the pineapple, chilli and lady’s fingers. Reduce heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes, then add tamarind pulp juice, bean sprouts and tomato.
  3. Bring to the boil again. Skim the top and season with fish sauce and sugar. Place the fish in a large soup bowl, ladle the vegetable stock in and garnish with saw-leaf herb and rice paddy herb.
  4. Serve hot with steamed rice or rice vermicelli.

Helpful hints:
*Rice paddy: A very small, rounded, pale green leaves that sprout at intervals along the stem, and a sharp, citrus flavor. It is used as a garnish for chicken curry and sour fish sauce.

*Saw-leaf herb: This leaf, which smells like coriander, is part of the standard garnish of fresh herbs that are served on the table with most Vietnamese meals. It has a long, serrated green leaf. Also known as’ long coriander.
