Fish with spicy tomato sauce


raw fish


I don’t know what kind of fish is this.

Where I got them? From the LAKE!

Couple days ago, the day was so humid and hot!! So hot to be outside but we went to the lake to fishing. My hubby and my son enjoyed their fishing time together. And where is mommy?? As usual mommy with her bulky camera acting like a pro photographer. Where her landscape photograph often come out with disappointment LOL

We brought home with 11 big fishes.

Our fishing day

My hubby is not a fish eater. I do! I can eat fish everyday. But sometimes it is quite bored eating fish all by myself. So yesterday I invited one of Indonesia friend to come over to eat fish together. Since both of us like fish and spicy then I cooked fish with Thai pepper and tomatoes.
While mommies enjoy eating fish with rice and stir fry vegetable kids were playing in the plastic pool.

Ingredients:
Fish (frying)
5 Bay leaves
Galangal
Basil
Salt
1 tablespoon of sugar
8 Shallots
4 Garlic
3 tomatoes
10 Thai pepper

fish

Deep frying fish until cooked

In the food processor put shallots, garlic, tomatoes and Thai pepper and chop them until smooth.

Heat the oil and stir-fry a mixture ingredient for about 2 minutes. Add bay leaves, galangal, basil, salt and sugar. Cook about 15 minutes or until the tomatoes sauce thickens, stirring occasionally to make sure that the sauce doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.

Pour the sauce over the fish and ready to serve.

Dwi,
Thx you ya, udah jadi ikutan MKMW. Mudah-mudahan jadi nggak bosen lagi untuk take food photos. I miss your post, I check your post at least twice a day and hoping that you have story or recipe. Hmmmm, disapointed, but I do understand and respect your feeling right now! Hopefully this wouldn't go for long!
