This is a very simple to cook dish and is delicious too. I normally don't like the salmon's (too strong) fishy smell. However after cooking it this way, the fish doesn't have any fishy smell at all. Now I can enjoy salmon. Got this recipe from t.v.
Salmon fish head (cut into 4 or 6)
some garlic (whole)
chillies (dry or any type of chilli - optional)
salt, pepper and sugar to taste
The number of shallots, garlic and ginger is up to you and also depends on how much fish head you are going to use. Put everything mentioned above in a pot. Add a few table spoon of vinegar. Squeeze some lemon juice (I used 1 whole lemon). Cover everything with coconut milk. Don't need too much coconut milk. Just enough to cover all the ingredients in the pot. Add salt, pepper and sugar. Bring it to a boil. Stir once in a while. Don't have to boil for too long. As long as the fish is cook, you can serve it.
It is nice to eat with rice or noodles or maybe pasta too. You can also just eat it like that. Once it is cook, you can see all the fish oil floating on the surface. We don't need to add oil when we cook. Salmons are pack with good oils. Despite the vinegar and lemon juice, this dish doesn't taste sour at all. Maybe next time I should try cooking it with milk instead of coconut milk. Wonder how it would taste, then.
Have fun cooking and thanks for reading.
