baked malaysian spicy tamarind snapper
Cuisine: Malaysian
I love this fish. It's quick and easy to throw together, and the use of a pre-made paste means you won't be scouring your local metropolis to find ingredients you've never seen before. It's also absolutely delicious, and makes a perfect dinner for two with rice (or a tasty, carbohydrate free dinner for one).
  • 1x 250g snapper (cleaned and scaled)
  • ½ brown onion
  • 3 kaffir lime leaves
  • 5 daun kosom leaves (also known as Vietnamese coriander leaves) (optional)
