25m 01s

In the fourth episode of Luke Nguyen’s Greater Mekong, Luke heads to Laos’ southern tip to the 4000 Islands, where fishing takes on a whole new meaning. On the Island of Don Khon, Luke learns the art of making the acquired fermented fish staple dish, ‘Padhek’. He cooks ‘Jeow Horn’ for some hungry fishermen at the Pa Soi rapids, and harvests red ants for a traditional red ant salad dish, which he discovers bites back! Luke rafts down the Mekong River to explore the other areas of the 4000 islands while he prepares a traditional fish dish, Laap Lao, at sunset.
