Jawa Fish With Cabbage Rolls Recipe

Jawa Fish With Cabbage Rolls Recipe


1.5lb cod fillet

1/2 tsp salt

3 tbsp lemon juice

1 small white or green cabbage

4 tbsp groundnut oil

1 large onion (chopped)

1 garlic clove (finely chopped)

1 tsp galangal

3 tsp chili paste

2 tsp soft brown sugar

1 egg (lightly beaten)


Rinse the fish and dry with kitchen paper. Chop the fish very finely. Mix the salt with lemon juice and stir until the salt dissolves. Coat the fish with this mixture and leave aside for 30 minutes. Take about 15 good leaves from the cabbage. Cut away the coarsest veins, then boil for 5 minutes in salted water. Drain the leaves and let in cool. Shred 1/2 lb of cabbage. Heat 2 tbsp of oil in pan  and stir fry the onion until fragrant. Put in the garlic and shredded cabbage and stir fry for 3 minutes. Add salt to taste, galangal, chili paste and sugar. Stir well. Remove from heat and put in the fish and the lightly beaten egg. Stir well. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Spread the drained cabbage leaves on a board. Divide the fish and cabbage mixture between the leaves and roll up and secure with wooden cocktail picks. Place the rolled up leaves side by side in an oiled ovenproof dish. Sprinkle a little oil on top and cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil. Bake for 25 minutes and serve.
