Fish Satay

We went to Prague in Czech Republic last weekend. It seems Czechs eat lots of meat because their dishes mostly are meat dishes. I love meat but I really missed fish. So yesterday I cooked this Fish Satay for our dinner, served with boiled rice and spinach clear soup as the accompaniment (my previous post).

FISH SATAY (Sate Lilit)

300g white fish, chopped
300g prawn
500g grated coconut
5 lime leaves, shredded
1 tbsp grated palm sugar
black pepper & salt

For the paste:
1 big red chilli (or more if you want)
1 tbsp grated palm sugar
2 cloves of garlic
12cm turmeric
2.5cm lesser galangal
2 lemon grass (the white part)
9cm galangal
10 candle nuts

Mix all the ingredients and spice paste into a food processor. Process it until all mix really well and form a big clump.
Take a handful of the fish mixture and stick it on a skewer. Flat it a little bit.
Finish all the fish mixture.
Grill them on a griddle / bbq / in the oven until all brown and cooked.

Serve with lemon wedges.

This satay is really good, especially if you want to give lots of flavour to rather bland fish like cod.
