The scent of lemongrass (Lemongrass Cordial) is even more adorable compared to the scent of the woman. Oh no!! Did I open a can of worms?? Maybe I shouldn't compare herb to woman. Perhaps other herbs may be more like it. Okay forget about women though we love cooking, eating, commenting and drooling over dishes. Perhaps drooling over this dish it must be as lemongrass has scented the fish with red chillies, soy sauce and be it the rest of the ingredients listed.
For the fish
8 pieces of ikan kembung/mackerel (de-gut and cleaned)
1 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
Salt for taste
** Combine and mix together.
For the sauce
1/2 inch ginger
2-3 red chillies
2-3 sprigs coriander leaves
** Slice these ingredients thinly
1/2 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp sweet soya sauce
1 tsp fish sauce (optional)
Spring onion curls for garnishing
Oil as needed
Salt (if only needed)
Deep fry fish and keep aside.
Leave about 3 tbsp of oil in the same pan.
Saute all the sliced ingredients (just for 1-2 mins)
Add everything else except fish and spring onion.
Pour about 2-3 tbsp of water if more gravy is likeable.
Stir and add fish.
Gently stir again to coat fish with the sauce.
Dish out and garnish with spring onion.
