Grilled Fish with Spices Recipe

(Ikan Panggang)

Ingredients : Serves 5

500 g fish steaks

2 onion, chopped roughtly

2 fresh red chili

2 clove garlic

1/2 teaspoon dried shrimp paste

1/2 teaspoon kencur powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups thick coconut milk

1 stalk lemon grass (white part only)

2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped

Vegetable oil

Lemon juice and salt to taste


Method :

Wash the fish and pat dry with paper towels. Place them in a single layer in a glass dish. Use a food processor to blend the chili, onion, garlic, dried shirmp paste, kencur and salt with half cup of the coconut milk. Blend until smooth. Crush the dried sambal paste and combine all these ingredients with the coconut milk. Marinate fish in the spice mixture for about 1.5 hours, turning the slices once. Preheat a griller until hot and line the tray with foil. Spoon off the marinade and leaving only those clinging onto the fish. Put the marinade into a small saucepan with the remaining coconut milk, lemon grass and the chopped basil. Simmer on low heat, stirring frequently to avoid curdling. Do not cover with a lid. Brush the fish with oil and put under the griller about 10 cm from the heat. Cook until the fish is brown on one side. Turn the fish steaks, repeat the process on this side as before. Once done, arrange the fish on a serving platter. Taste the sauce and add more salt to taste. Add lemon juice to taste too. Spoon over the fish and serve hot.
