1.5 kg red snapper or jew fish (medium sized)

1 Medium onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic

1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger

2 tablespoons tamarind liquid

1 tablespoon Dark Soy Sauce

1 tablespoon oil

1 teaspoon sambel ulek (optional)

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground tumeric

3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh corriander leaves


Banana leaves or foil for wrapping

Method:

Wash fish and dry well with paper towel.

Score the flesh diagonally on each side.

Put onion, garlic, ginger, tamarind liquid, soy sauce, oil, sambal ulek, salt and turmeric into blender container, cover and blend until smooth.

Rub blended mixture well into the fish on both sides and put remaining mixture inside body cavity.

Put fish on 2 or 3 large pieces of banana leaves in a baking dish, sprinkle with chopped coriander leaves and fold banana leaves over to enclose the fish.

Secure with bamboo skewers.

Bake in a moderate oven for 35-40 minutes or until fish is cooked.

Oven temperature should be 170oC-190oC.

When ready to serve, the flesh will look milky white and flake easily when tested with a fork.

Replace banana leaves after testing, lift fish on to a serving plate and open banana leaves at the table.

Serve hot.

No, usually the maid goes to the market at cipete, since we just live around the corner, and she gets all the veges or spices from there.

As for fish n other meats I prefer to buy it at the supermarket. I hate the thought of all those flies!!

not only the flies, but the amount of time that the dead fish spend basking in the sun until the fishermen get back to the beach! ripens them up good and proper, it does!

frankly, i'm always reluctant to eat fish anywhere in SE Asia.

We were over on Pulau Sepa once, and a fishing boat had broken down and came to the island to ask if they could tie up for the night there.

We were talking to the guys on the boat who had been out on the sea for about 8 days. There were 4 guys on a tiny boat, and you couldnt even stretch out and have a proper lay down. The boat was full of fishing stuff and boxes to keep the catch "fresh".

And basically a small stove to cook whatever food they caught or simple things like indomie. And it smelt realllyyyyyyy bad.

Placed a couple of pics in the gallery section smile

Yeah. Everything's safe to eat as long as it's been fried in a litre of palm oil for ten minutes. I highly recommend ikan goreng Bawel Bahagia from Warung Bahagia (padang style), Jl Mampang Prapatan, just past hero Mampang.

Whole fish is deep fried till even the head is edible, and is served covered an inch deep in halapeno style mild green pickled chillies. Delicious.
