FLYING FISH / IKAN TERBANG




Ikan Terbang literally means Flying Fish. This is another Sundanese signature that I tried to imitate but I failed. You really need to have a sharp knife to cut both size of the fish so that it resemble the wings of the fish. I bought two "talapia" did my first try but the whole fish mashed up, so the second fish I just left it as it is. Soaked the fish with garlic for a few minutes and deep fry.

This fried talapia serves best "Sambal Kicap" soy sauce condiment. If you are good in "operating" the fish the way it was served in the restuarant then you will definitely have a nice crispy fish. So...so..nice with hot steamed rice.

INGREDIENTS
1 talapia / 1 ekor ikan talapia
Sufficient water / Air secukupnya
5 cloves garlic / 5 ulas bawang putih
1 tsp salts v/ 1 sdt garam

Ikan terbang yang tidak boleh terbang. Itulah terjadi kepada experiment saya membuat talapia goreng ala Sunda. Gara-gara tidak pandai mengkelar ikan menyerupai sayap projek saya gagal. Ikan ini sebenarnya kalau kena gaya menyediakanya cukup ranggup macam makan keropok ...cukup sedap lebih..lebih lagi kena dengan sambal kicap.  masih tidak putus asa, saya akan terus mecuba sehingga ikan saya benar-benar boleh terbang.
