Thai Style-Baked Mackerel

Kalau bulan puasa bawaannya lapar mata:p, ga bisa liat makanan, pasti kepengen. Di pasar jg gitu, kayanya pgn beli macem2. Eh pas lewat di toko ikan, ngliat ikan, kok kepengen banget makan ikan bakar ya, lagian udah lama jg ga masak ikan2an. Ya udah saya beli mackerel 4 ekor, gendut-gendut bok:D:D..hehehe..^_^. Saya untung jg ni, pas lagi ada harga khusus utk mackerel, jadi lebih murah daripada biasanya. Ini ni yg namanya jodoh..ya ga? kekekekke….

Terus, saya mau nyobain resep yg ada di majalah Easy Living ah, ikan bakar ala Thai. Gimana si rasanya, penasaran..:)

2 tsp Fish sauce

2 tbsp fresh lime juice

Olive oil, for drizzling

2 fresh limes, halved

Directions :

1. Heat the oven to 200 deg.celcius

2. Using a food processor or crush the garlic, chillies, ginger, coriander and salt until fine.

3. Add the sugar, fish sauce and lime juice and mix until it forms a paste.

4. Rinse and dry the fish an cut three slashes into each side. Brush each side with the paste.

5. Place the fish on a baking tray. drizzle with a little oil. the the lime halves to the tray. Bake for 15-20 mins, or until the flesh is cooked.

6. Serve with steam rice and baby spinach leaves. ( I made sambal, it is a perfect mate for the baked fish :D)
