Ikan Terubuk Masin

Frankly, I'd never tasted ikan terubuk masin (salted terubuk fish) though I'm from the land famous of this product. But every time I go back to my hometown, friends and colleagues will sure ask for ikan terubuk masin. Really so good ah?

And frankly, I never knew that Kuching is so famous with ikan terubuk masin until i came over to Peninsular Malaysia to further my study two decades ago. Course-mates and friends had been talking about the delicious and mouth-watering salted fish. But then, i have not tried this delicacy even until today. Selama ni beli untuk orang je, tak pernah rasa.

During my last trip home (a work trip, along with some colleagues), like two weeks ago, my colleagues were excited seeing the salted fishes and bought some. I too, bought a huge box of ikan terubuk masin. Still, didn't thought of keeping one for myself. Really, i just don't really know how to cook them. Or rather, i don't know how to process them, cook with what, or when to serve... aiyoo....


Therefore, for those of you ikan terubuk masin enthusiast, please do share your recipe.

Erm... I might not try them, or maybe i would.

josh,
one of my favourites.
it tastes damn good. the whole family members are in love with this. Oh mine, ..... i wish i could have that terubuk here.
My mum just fry it with chopped onions, dried chillies, and a couple of things (no idea what). Simple yet irresistible.

budak2 xsesuai makan coz byk tulang sgt..adult kalau nak mkn kena byk sabar and mata yg tajam utk isolate tulang tu..tp sebab sedap punya psl org sanggup jer..

Josh said...

[Ain-ain] Ooo, ye kerrr.... ok ok, Josh cuba makan nanti.
