Grilled Fish Fillet

Notes, Tips & Tricks

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 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.
