Indonesian Fish Recipe

Fish are great source of protein and healthy fats

There are a lot of great Indonesian fish recipe, from traditional to modern cuisine. And fish is also the most important daily food of Indonesian people, because we lived on islands and if you live on the beach in Indonesia, there is every morning fresh fish on the beach that you can buy from the fisherman.

In Bali such as in Jimbaran, there is a lot of beach restaurant that offer fresh fish for your meal. You can choose which fish that you want and they make your fish meal ready. So, fresher than this is, is impossible.

Unfortunately, not every country very blessed with fresh fish on the beach. It’s ok to use frozen fish if you can’t find fresh one.

You can also buy fresh fish on the market, they are usually fresh but you have to be careful to buy some, here are a few tips about the typical look of fresh fish. Look very good at the fish before you buy it.

What you need to know to choose a good and fresh fish:

  • Fish that has been around for a while have reddish flesh and the surface wouldn’t bounce back when you bump at it.
  • Smell the fish, fresh fish doesn’t have fishy smell.
  • Look very good at the fish: fresh fish have bright red gills, shiny and bright scales and they have excellent shiny eyes with black pupils and clear corneas. Rotten fish in contrary have blackish of gray gills and they have grayish and concave eyes.
