Category : Fish

Yield: 1 Servings

Ingredients (Help):
1 Whole fish, weighing a total
-of 2 lbs. together (Owen
-calls for either mullet,
-snapper, or mackerel) (up
-to 2)
3 Chiles (either frutescen or
-annuum; I use a half dozen

-only had bird chiles, I'd
-toss in a dozen)
3 Candlenuts (substitute
-Brazil nuts)
1 Piece ginger root, 1 inch
1 lg Ripe tomato, peeled and
1/2 ts Turmeric
1 Lime, juice of
2 tb Chopped mint

From Sri Owen's "Indonesian Food and Cookery", from Menado, Indonesia

Clean the fish. Pound the chiles, candlenuts, and ginger together into a
paste. Add all the other ingredients, and rub the resulting mixture onto
the fish, inside and out. Wrap the fish in foil, refrigerate for at least
30 minutes. Bake in a 375 F oven for 15 minutes. Just before serving,
unwrap the fish and put under the grill for 5 minutes.
