Salted/Dried Fish with Pineapple in Spicy Gravy(Masak Lemak Ikan Kering dengan Nenas)


Assalamualaikum and hello dear Readers.

Another quick and simple dish for lunch or dinner or Iftar.I am sharing with you a dish called Salted/Dried Fish with Pineapple in Spicy Gravy(Masak Lemak Ikan Kering dengan Nenas) If you don't like pineapple, you can use sweet potato or pumpkin. As usual the amount of chillies can be reduced if you wish. I have used Salted/Dried Red Snapper. Dried fish is quite expensive nowadays. My grandmother used to make her own dried fish as were the norm with fishing folks in Langkawi and other fishing villages in Malaysia.

Here's the video

Here's the recipe:
Salted/Dried Fish with Pineapple in Spicy Gravy(Masak Lemak Ikan Kering dengan Nenas)

2 tbs turmeric powder
2 lemon grass (bruised)
1 turmeric leaf
1 litre coconut milk
salt to taste.


1) Place all ingredients in a deep pan or pot and slowly bring to boil.
2) Put salt if necessary
3) Ready to serve

    I remember living in KL years ago my Mom prepared similar dish with Salted Fish (we call it Ikan Asin) from Penang (?).

    Wish I can help you take care of Ali and Abu Bakar but vets here are usually full during Ramadhan.
    Hope you would enjoy their company.

    Thanks for sharing, Umi.
