Ikan Keli Masak Lemak Cili Api

This is my 1st dish for MFF Negeri Sembilan month.This is one of the way cook Masak Lemak Cili Api.I used smoked Catfish (Ikan Keli Salai).You can smoke the fish at home.It very easy.It just like BBQ.

This how I smoke my fish.Wash and drain the fish.Catfish a bit hard to wash because the skin very smooth and got thing like gum.You can use salt to wash out the gum.After grill the gum will gone.Don't worry about it.Then grill it on charcoal.That easy.If you don't want use fish,you also can use chicken,duck or bird to cook this Masak Lemak Cili Api.Same method to grill the meat.If you are vegetarian you can use oyster mushroom or cassava shoots.It taste good also.

Here is the recipe :
