Hi everyone, welcome back to Nyonya Cooking! Usually, during Ramadan we will opt for recipes which are easy and delicious Therefore, today I will be showing you Nyonya-styled fish with cili paste). This dish is a little spicy but delicious. Let’s look at the ingredients to prepare this dish. We will need fish, cloves of garlic, a bit of shrimp paste too add some kick to our dish. Some chilies, shallots, oil and some calamansi. Since I can’t find calamansi here, I’m using lime. And some salt. The first step is to cook the fish. Usually the fish will be deep fried. But for this recipe, I will cook the fish in the oven because it only uses a bit of oil and the fish will still be crispy. Let’s begin by adding some salt to the fish. Transfer the fish to a baking pan and pour some oil over. The fish will now be transferred to the oven. Grill the fish at 200 Celsius for 40 Minutes. Next, we will prepare the chili paste. Blend the shallots, chilies, garlic and belacan. If possible, look for “belacan bakar” (toasted/grilled shrimp paste) for a more fragrance smell. To ease the blending process, cut the ingredients into smaller pieces and add a bit of water. Don’t forget to add the shrimp paste. After blending, add a bit of oil and stir fry the chili paste until fragrant. Once the colour of the chili paste becomes darker, add some salt The chili paste is now ready. Pour the excess oil away. The chili paste will be placed on the fish. 40 minutes passed and we’ll remove the fish from the oven. Remove the fish from the baking pan and place it on a plate. Last step is to place the chili paste on the fish. Add some slices of lime/calamansi. The juice from the sliced lime/calamansi will perk up this dish!
