Ikan Bakar (Grilled Fish Wrapped in Banana Leaves)


BBQ Fish - or Ikan Panggang is a general term meaning grilled or barbecued fish. A popular local fish for grilling is Ikan Kembong. Marinated with dollops of spice paste, the fish is wrapped in banana leaves and grilled to perfection over charcoal fire. A true Malay classic, ikan panggang/ikan bakar (grilled fish wrapped in banana leaves) is very popular in Singapore.

Recipe for Ikan Bakar:
Ingredients for Ikan Bakar:
  • 1/2 - 1 lb of fish fillet
  • Spice Paste
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 shallots
  • 6 dried chillies
  • 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of toasted belacan
  • 2 inches of lemon grass (white part only)
  • 1 inch of galangal
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon of oil
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • Tamarind Juice

  • 3 red chilies (deseeded)

Method:

  4. In a mortar and pestle or food processor, pound/blend the red chilies, bird’s eye chilies, and toasted belacan.
