This post begin with my happiness found tenggiri fish (spanish mackarel) last week in a market here.. Yeaaayy..last week i found it many in fish shop with a reasonable price -read : cheap :))- yippieee.. :D
then i start to think about many Indonesian food can be made by this fish, Otak otak, empek empek, gulai, and many more.. :)) and i bought 2 pack..i even thought to buy more :))) but but i also realize that i will be very busy lately...and wouldn't cook so many menu.. :( so i choose to make otak otak tenggiri.
i got the recipe from dapur eeyand thanks Yulyan ;)
i also modify this recipe by add white pepper powder, change banana leaf with aluminium foil because i don't have Banana leaf here and also i use grinder and blender than food processor.. check my modified recipe..
250 gr ikan tenggiri dingin fillet (250 gr spanish mackarel, fillets)
3 siung bawang putih,memarkan (3 cloves garlic, crushed)
3 siung bawang merah, potong-potong (IKA : 1 buah bawang bombay, potong kecil ) (1 onion, cut into small pieces)
10 tangkai kucai (yulyan : pake daun bawang) (Ika : used leeks too as Yulyan)
1 putih telur (1 egg white)
50 ml santan dari 1/4 butir kelapa (yulyan : pake santan instant) (ika : i used 50 ml fresh milk)
Garam secukupnya (salt to taste)
Gula secukupnya (sugar to taste)
*1/4 sdt merica bubuk (1/4 tsp white pepper powder) -IKA modify-
1 sdm tepung hunkwe (ika : i don't have, so i changed with 50 gr tapioca starch/or u can used maizena/corn starch)
Daun pisang untuk membungkus, layukan daun diatas api (i don't have banana leaf, so i used aluminium foil)
Minyak goreng secukupnya untuk mengoles (oil, to grease aluminium foil)
- Masukkan ikan tenggiri dalam blender atau food processor bersama bawang putih dan bawang merah. Blender sampai lembut.
(ika : process spanish mackarel with grinder little by little, after all fillet fish is done then blend garlic, onion and mixed it all with blender)
- Masukkan kucai, blender kembali.
- Tambahkan ptih telur, santan. garam, dan gula. Blender kembali sampai lembut.
(add leeks (step2), egg white, fresh milk, pepper, salt and sugar, mixed it all)
- Tambahkan tepung hunkwe, aduk rata. -Ika : tambahkan tepung maizena-
(add corn starch, then mixed it)
- Oleskan minyak diatas daun pisang.
grease oil on the aluminium foil.
- Sendokkan adonan diatas daun pisang. Bungkus,semat lidi di kedua ujungnya.
add 1 tablespoon of batter or as you like, wrap it.
- Panggang diatas bara api sampai matang.
if you used banana leaf : grilled until cooked, you can grilled it on teflon too
if you used alumium foil :
kukus sekitar 30 menit, sudah bisa dinikmati... :) tapi jika ingin dibakar maka ambil isinya dan panggang sebentar di atas teflon yang dioles minyak.
steamed for about 30 minutes or until cooked, then take otak-otak, grilled it for a while on teflon (grease with a little oil first).
