Asam (Tamarind) Fish Curry (Singapore) [May. 14th, 2009|11:47 am]
Singapore Recipes



The Asam fish was really cheap and good.  For SG$12, you get two decent size fish steaks doused generously with the asam gravy, heaps of eggplant, tomatoes and ladiesfinger (okra). It is actually a pretty simple dish to whip up.  It involves soaking the pulp of the tamarind fruit till it is soft, and squeezing out the juice.  It is then cooked with some aromatic spices, the soft vegetables are added, and once it is soft, the fish is added.  The savoury taste of this dish is very unique. It is a little sour, a little sweet.  Very apetising.
