Borneo Marinated Fish Recipe

Borneo Marinated Fish Recipe

Ingredients :

500g (1 lb) very fresh white fish (Spanish mackerel preferred)

1/3 cup freshly squeezed lime or lemon juice

2-3 red chilies

1 tsp salt

6-8 shallots, thinly sliced

5cm (2 inch) ginger, very finely shredded

2 sprigs fresh coriander leaves, roughly chopped

2 sprigs Chinese celery, roughly chopped

Method :

Remove all skin and bones form the fish and cut it in thin slices. Keep aside 2 tbsp of lime juice then soak the fish in the remaining juice for at least 30 minutes, stirring once or twice, until the fish turns white. Drain and discard lime juice.

While the fish is marinating, pound the chilies with salt until fine. When fish is ready, mix it with the chilies, shallots, ginger, fresh herbs and reserved lime juice.

Taste and add more salt if desired. Serve immediately as part of a rice-based meal.

Note - Spanking fresh fish marinated with lemon juice and spiced up with lashings of ginger, shallots and chilies is a favorite among Sarawak's Melanau people, who call their version Umai, and Sabah's Kadazans, who call it Hinava.
