Cencaru Sumbat Sambal Goreng Recipe (Hard Tail Scad fish stuffed with fried Chillies)

I bought some fresh table size Cencaru from the market last week. I have not been cooking Cencaru Sumbat cili (Chili stuffed fish) for quite sometime due to the hassle of having to saute the chili paste separately before stuffing it into the fish and then deep frying them. However, cencaru fish taste very delicious when cooked this way. Even my four year old son enjoy this spicy treat! LOL!

Here is my recipe for Cencaru Sumbat Sambal Goreng (Hardtail Scad Fish Stuffed with fried chillies)

Ingredients
Cencaru Fish, 2 pcs, cut near dorsal fins to form pocket to hold the sambal (chilli)
Chilli paste, 1 tablespoon
Shallots, 3 pcs, blended
Tamarind juice, to taste
Salt to taste
Sugar to taste
Vegetable oil

Pour vegetable oil into hot wok. Saute, shallots and chilli paste until fragrant. Add tamarind juice, salt and sugar to taste. Fry until the mixture turned into a semi dry paste. Stuff the chilli paste (sambal) into the fish. Heat up enough oil for deep frying. Fry fish at high heat until they turned golden brown. Serve while still hot!

Yummmm...I like this fish and the similar ones of around the same size. Cheaper than some of the bigger ones and can be even nicer.
