Fish in Sour and Spicy Sauce (Ikan Asam Pedas)

Ingredients & spices :

1 1/2 pounds Fish Fillet
2 Shallots
Ginger 1 piece
2 small chilies
1/2 tsp Turmeric
1/2 tsp Tamarind
2 tsp Soy Sauce (Dark)
2 tbsp Oil
Salt to taste
Pepper, black to taste

How to prepare :

Remove all skin from fish fillets, ensure that no bones remain and cut into serving-size pieces.

Chop very finely the shallots, ginger, garlic and chilies, and pound these together with the turmeric powder, tamarind and soy sauce (or use a food processor).

Heat the oil in a shallow pan and stir-fry the spice-paste for four to five minutes, then add the fish, cover with approximately one cup of cold water and bring to a boil.

Lower heat, season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper and cook over a very low heat until the fish is done.

Ready to serve.
