For the grilling or  barbequing seasoning, i use Sambal Rica-Rica. Another spicy and hot sambal from Manado, it uses ginger, chili, lemon and spices. Suitable for barbecue meats and seafoods. I’ve posted Grilled Beef Ribs with Indonesian Spicy Rica-Rica Sauce or  Resep Iga Sapi Bakar Bumbu Rica-Rica. For todays lunch, i use ikan baronang or rabbit fish, species from family Siganidae.  Common baronang in Indonesia is Baronang Susu (Siganus canaliculatus). This fish ir rather seasonal fish with a white, sweet and succulent meat. Ikan baronang is usually grilled, deep fried or even pepes (steamed with banana leaves wrap).

Since i’m starving and literrary can wait longer to cooked through the fish with grilling, i deep fried the fish first to cheated the cooking duration. Well, some of the restaurant did this too. The fish is usually seasoned, deep fried until half done than grilled with  some seasoning applied. The fish is grilled just to infused the smokey aromas and this can get rid  the fishy smells.

  1. Wow, that looks lovely! I think we had rabbit fish or something similar when we were in Palau a long time ago but ours was grilled on the beach after a day of snorkeling. It didn’t look as lovely as yours but it was tender and delicious 🙂

  2. a Malay-style dish prepared from fish and spices and cooked until the fish loses its shape. Available in varieties, some are in the shape of dry fish floss known as serunding ikan, and some are moist such as sambal ikan bilis ( anchovies ) or sambal ikan tongkol ( skipjack tuna ).
