Ikan Cencaru Sumbat

This is a recipe from my MIL. I love this fried unlike HB who prefers it grilled. What's important is the filling she makes that is simple yet appetizing.

First is to saute 2 tbs of pounded shallots & a tbsp pounded garlic.

Once it turns golden, add in 3 -4 tbsp of chilly paste

Stir evenly until the paste is cooked

Join in 3-4 tbsp of grounded dried shrimps. Continue stirring for a minute.

Put in 3 cups of grated coconut

Stir & add in salt to taste if necessary.

Fill up the fish (which should be earlier marinated with turmeric powder & salt) with the filling.

Deep fry the fish until almost crispy. You may also grill it as HB likes it.

Here you go the Ikan Cencaru Sumbat.
