Making my homemade bratwurst sausage in my very humble amateur kitchen is one of my obsession. Eversince i start making Lap Cheoung Air Dry Cured Chinese Sausage, i was curious about homemade fresh sausage. Store brought bratwurst sausage  may contain tons of preservatives, color dying agent, and msg (monosodium glutamat) or other flavour enhanced agents. The ratio beetween the emat and filler content is incredibly low, trust mea you won’t eat it if you know what it made of.  I didn’t added any msg on my homemade bratwurst, instead i’m using palm sugar to enhance umami balance flavour with the salt, simply magic as what happen to salted caramel.

Before making your homemade bratwurst or other fresh sausage, you should know about the savety about handling the ingredients first. All the utensil must be clean and the meat ingredients must be kept cold (about 4°C) to ensure the meat in the prime condition. Improper prepared  fresh bratwurst sausage can be derived to botulism, a serious, potentially fatal and lethaly disease. Botulism is an intoxication usually caused by ingestion of potent neurotoxins in contaminated foods. You should know first that the neurotoxin excrete by Clostridium botulinum bacteria. The  neurotoxin  destroyed by heating  more than 85°C (185 °F) for more than 5 minutes, but the bacteria spores that are heat-resistant. The bacteria usually in a spores (inactive form) and usually germinate, grow and then excrete toxins in the low or absence of oxygen. So in my opinion the additional of nitrate (pink salt, salpetre etc) is absolutely  important because it’s an effective agent agains Clostridium botulinum.  Maybe you heard that nitrate are toxic, infact nitrosamines did. Nitrosamine formed when nitrate transform into nitrite then react with amino acids or very high heat. Nitrosamines are known to be powerful DNA damaging chemicals and resulting cell mutation and cancer. But don’t really bother about it, infact a single portion of spinach or celery contain more nitrosamines than you can imagine. So, did salpetre or curing salt it essensial for making fresh bratwurst ? it’s a tricky question, If you made a small quantity like mine and cooked it directly in a fresh state without any further dry aging process i guess it’s not really essensial.

I quite familiar with raw seafood dishes, actually way before i made myself naniura, i made my Raw Live Spiny Lobster Ceviche with Cherry Tomatoes and also Raw Tiger Prawn Sashimi.

In order to reduce the risk, you should pay extra attention on the following tips to handle raw fish dish at home :

  • If you had live fish, keep it  alive as long as posible, kill it just before serving or using the raw fish within the recipe,
  • If you had a vaccum packed fish filets with certified sashimi grade, thaw it in the fridge overnight or submerged the whole package in a cold water before serving or using raw fish in the recipe, never thawing it in room temperature or your fish gonna be spoiled.
  • Keep all the tools clean and properly desinfected for serving or using raw fish in the recipe, stop handling the fish if there are accidentally wounds cuts on your hands. Cleanliness is the law for handling raw food!!!
  • Keep the raw fish cold, right after you dressed the live fish, put some ice to kept it cold, it’s better you serving or using raw fish in the recipe over a bed of ice.
  • Keep it fast and moving, dress your fish quickly and served it immediately, it’s better to served raw fish  within 2-4 hours after killed and dressed.
  • Incase your raw fish is not fresh or with a strange taste (usually from the frozen vaccum pack), stop eating it.

Dengke naniura isn’t much known and served this days, my parent’s generation maybe had a chance to enjoying naniura  once a while their grown up, but for some of the Bataknese descent in my generation didn’t even known anymore about it and thus made naniura less known and apreciated even more. Naniura used to be a festive dish in any Bataknese celebration occations, but now i’ve never seen any naniura served outside North Sumatra land. Countless lapo (bataknese ethnic restaurant) appear across Indonesia, but seldom providing naniura in the menu, unless special order made priorly the day before. I totally understand why i didn’t grown up with naniura, that because my mom comes from the Batak Mandailing (Southern Bataknese) that not used to naniura dish, but luckily my grandma from my father comes from Batak Toba (Northen Bataknese) and she more than happy to share her recipe. The worst thing about naniura is now only several elder know about the authentic recipe of making it. Backthen once there’s no refrigerator and people made their naniura with a humble kitchen tools, but now the refrigerator exist and it’s kinda embarrassed me off for my bataknese descent blood running throught my vein but i didn’t try making dekke naniura once. Now in  the day that i’m turning 25, i celebrate my birthday to share the recipe of Dekke Naniura by my humble  grandmother Opung Nova boru Hutabarat.

Salmon Eye Ball, The Best Part of Salmon Head!

This is the salmon eye balls, the best part of the salmon head. back then when i was a little kid i used to had the eyeball when my mom made a dish with fish head like Woku Ikan Belanga (Indonesian Red Snapper Fish Head Curry Soup) or Palumara Ulu Juku ( Spicy Grouper Fish Head Soup with Turmeric Based Broth)  eversince i used to be “the kid” in the house and it made both of my sisters pissed off. Well, honestly the previlledge as a youngest  and only son it’s more pleasant for me rather than the fish eyeballs itself, you can called me childish, but i really missed that argues even more now once we grown up.
