Nonya Seafood Recipes - Ikan Otak Otak are made from fresh mackerel meat pounded and marinated with coconut milk, ground chilli, onions, lemongrass, blue ginger and turmeric. This fragrant paste then wrapped in a fresh banana leaf which brings its own subtle flavour and ability to retain moisture and taste and left to sizzle over hot charcoals, or cook gently in a steamer. Though otak otaks are traditionally made of fish meat, modern versions of otak otak use crab or prawn meat and fish head too.

Ikan Otak Otak Method Step by Step:

1. If using fresh tenggiri, fillet fish and cut into slices. If using fish meat, shape into rectangular cakes 8 x 4 x 1 cm and soak in water. Prepared fish meat sold in markets tend to be salty.

2. Knead grated coconut with water for milk and leave aside. In a dry pan, fry skinned grated coconut until golden brown. Remove and pound till fine.

3. Mix rempah ingredients with coconut milk, sliced kesom, turmeric and limau purut leaves, salt, sugar, beaten eggs and corn-flour. The consistency should be like soft butter.

4. Scald banana leaves in hot water to make them pliable. Put 2 heaped tablespoons of the mixture on each piece of banana leaf and make into parcels, securing by folding over at either side (see diagram below). Grill in the oven or over hot coals for 6 minutes, turning once.
