Spiced Fish Wrapped in Banana Leaves - Otak Otak Recipe

Ingredients :

500g (1 lb) white fish fillets

4 candlenuts

2 medium onions, minced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 tsp turmeric powder or 1 tsp grated fresh turmeric

2.5 cm (1 inch) piece fresh ginger, minced

1/2 tsp tamarind

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp chili powder

2 tsp coriander, ground

2 tsp cumin, ground

1/2 tsp daun kesom (Vietnamese coriander), chopped

banana leaves (or aluminum foil)

Method :

Cut fish into thin slices about 1cm (1/2 inch) thick and 10cm by 5cm (4 inches by 2 inches). Grind candlenuts and mix to a paste with all the remaining ingredients, except banana leaves. Hold banana leaves over a flame to soften.

Coat each fish slice thickly with the ground ingredients and wrap in a small piece of well-greased banana leaf. Secure with toothpicks. Grill or toast over a charcoal fire for 8-10 minutes.

Serve with the leaf partially torn away to display the fish.
