    kiwidutch's Note:

    Sister in Law came back from central America with a cookbook and this was something she made out of it... can be made as hot n' spicy or as mild as you prefer,(start off mild so that you can judge how much extra sambal you might want to add another time) and can be made in advance and popped in the oven for dinner parties, and is excellent served with a simple crisp salad and plain while rice... Enjoy!

    Units: US | Metric

    The Fish mixture

    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 onion
    • 500 g fish fillets (either fresh or frozen)
    • 1/4 teaspoon sambal tjampoer (or 1/4 teaspoon any very hot chili sauce)
    • 2 tablespoons soya sauce (extra,to taste)
    • 3 tablespoons desiccated coconut
    • 1/4 cup coconut meat (large white chunks of coconut) (optional)

    1/2 cup Sweet and sour sauce

    The Rest


    1. 1
      Sauté the onion in the olive oil in pan, add the soy sauce, sambal and sweet and sour sauce.
    2. 2
      Add the fish and simmer for 15 minutes, add more soy sauce according to preference and the dissicated coconut and the coconut meat (if used).
    3. 3
      Simmer for several minutes more (the sauce should have reduced somewhat and the whole mixture be cooked and not too liquid at all).
    4. 4
      Put spoonfulls into the middle of tortilla's and roll them up, tucking in the ends as you go to make little parcels.
    5. 5
      Line up the packages in an oven dish, sprinkle grated cheese over the top, put into a hot oven (200 C) for about 20 minutes until hot.
    6. 6
      *note*these can be made the day before and heated the next day, but you'll need to allow more time in the oven.
    7. 7
      Serve with fresh crisp salad and white rice.
    8. 8
      *note*Here in the Netherlands there are many different Sambal's available, and now I often see them in the Indonesian section of overseas supermarkets.If you can't get it I think that most hot pepper/chilli sauces could be used as substitute. Yes, you can make this mild enough for the kids to eat too!

      These are really unusual and tasty! I used tilapia for the fish, sriracha for the hot sauce, and I didn't include the optional coconut meat. These were really quick to prepare. I only got 6 tortillas out of this rather than 8, but I may have overfilled them. Thanks for posting!
