Balado Makarel

Since I have a farmer market next to my house every Saturday morning, I can get fresh fish on that market. I start to make the habit to have Fish day on Saturday. My boys seem waiting for that day. They prefer Fish instead of Meat.Ok.Ok..Of course they eat without the sambal balado in it. that's  balado menu is only for me..

Sambal Balado Makarel Recipe

3 big fish ( Makarel )
1 big lemon ( squize and get the juice out 0
1 tsp sea salt

10 long red chilies (cabai merah keriting)
  5 big shallots
4 cloves garlic
1 red Tomato ( people from padang sometime didn't use the tomato to avoid the reduce of the hot spice from the chilly )
1 tsp sea salt
 Vegetable oil for fry

1. For the Fish.. clean up the inside, cut it in 2, put in the plate , add the lemon juice and sea salt on top of the fish, put a side to marinated about 15-20 minutes.
2.For the Balado sauce ,With a food processor, combine shallot, garlic, red chilies, sea salt, and tomato until smooth but not too fine.
3. Fry the fish and flip it to make the fish cook even. put a side , still using the same oil, fry the sambal, you can continue to stir frying the sambal mixture until you can smell the aroma or the oil start to come out/bubble.
4. Add the fry makarel on the balado sauce pan, mixed well ( about 5 minutes )
