Ikan Sumbat Sambal Kelapa ~ Coconut Sambal Stuffed fish~ 椰丝參巴醬酿鱼

This stuffed fish recipe was created after i tried few nice stuffed fish from my friend and my friend's mother . Love the citrus aroma from the Kaffir lime leaves and coconut aroma from the grated coconut. This time i used ikan cencaru or hardtail mackarel fish , but i still prefer that one i cooked with ikan kembung which the flesh was more fine.

A very Malay influence dishes for dinner the other day, this stuffed fish served with cabbage stir fried with oyster and fried eggs in soy sauce gravy.
