Sambal Fish

 This few days we (my daughter and I) are having dinner at my dear friend's house. Since my husband is overseas for few days so my friend has invited us to go for dinner instead. Dinner with friends are the best, we can chat and eat at the same time....and that means we'll gain weight in a way...haha! Cause we will never feel full when you eat and talk at the same time...;p

Well, I can't just go dinner with my empty hands right?! So today I've cooked something alittle hot and spicy for our dinner. Sambal Fish!! It was nice and just right to go with some hot steamed white rice...yummy!!

Ingredients for the paste:
20 shallots
2-3 stalks lemon grass
1/4 " fresh tumeric
5 red chilli
2-3 chilli padi
1 tbsp chilli paste
3-4 slices kaffir leaves
1/2 tsp lemon juice
salt and sugar to taste
2 tbsps cooking oil

~ Mix everything in a blender and blend everything together except salt, sugar and oil)
~ Heat up a wok with the cooking oil, then saute the ingredients till fragnant.
~ Add lemon juice, sugar and salt to taste.

Ingredients for the dish:
500g black pomfret
3 big onions (shredded)
2-3 tbsps water
* above paste (amount depends to individual, but I used all of it)
* cooking oil.

~ Marinate the cleaned fish with some paste for at least 30 minutes. Then heat up some cooking oil and panfry the fish (both sides) until brown and fully cooked.
~ Saute shredded onions until tender, add in the paste and mix well. Add water and bring to boil. Pour onto prepared fish, and served.
