Grilled Fish Fillet

I have adapted this recipe from "Fillet Kakap Panggang" Jamuan Istimewa 6 Menu Hidangan – Primarasa, an indonesian cookbook. My short note about this dish, It's easy to prepare but tastes real good!!. The combination between Kecap Manis & Lime Juice tastes a bit different from other indonesian sauces which usually contain hot chilli or peanut. And one more thing… far as experience told me, the sauce meets also european's taste lol 😉
Tips : You can use different sort of fish but white fish fillets are much tastier.


  • Cut the fish fillet into a rectangular shape. Put aside.
  • Put all the marinating ingredients in a bowl and stir to mix.
  • Marinate the fish and keep aside in a fridge for 15 minutes.
  • Grill the fish in a grill pan. Turn it over to fry the other side until both sides are well cooked.
  • Put all ingredients for the sauce in a small sauce pan and simmer it shortly just to get it warm.
  • Serve the fish right away with rice or potato, sauce and salad.
