I'm baaack!!! After four days of super sweet and salty food in Yogya, I was itching for something spicy and sour. And I know this is a food blog and all, but don't shoot me if I whip out one of my fave instant packet sauces to do the job... hehe... yummy dinner in less than 10 minutes!
Assam Pedas (Spicy Sour) Fish
Spanish Mackerel or Tenggiri fish steaks - cut into half
1 tsp turmeric powder
A pinch of salt
1 packet Brahims Assam Pedas Sauce
Lots of small onions - sliced
1 tomato - cubed
1 cup water
Oil for frying
Mix fish steaks with turmeric powder and salt and then fry till golden brown. In seperate sauce pan, heat a little oil and fry onions and tomatoes until soft. Add in Assam pedas sauce and water and leave to cook till thickened. Add fried fish and give it a good stir to coat well. Serve with white rice.
p/s: For those of you who don't have instant assam pedas sauce available, you could make it from scratch. Recipe here.
p/p/s: The sauce works great with prawns and sting-ray too! I usually add in ladies fingers (okra) if I'm making it as a one dish meal.
