Putting the right food on our plates

Thilsted was given the honour as the 2021 World Food Prize Laureate for pioneering a fish farming system that helped millions of people worldwide put nutritious food on their plates.

FOR someone who helped to nourish millions with fish, it is only apt that her favourite food in Penang is the asam laksa.

The spicy and sour fish soup with noodles is a go-to dish for nutrition expert Dr Shakuntala Haraksingh Thilsted, who was recently named the 2021 World Food Prize Laureate.
