Fried Spanish Mackarel in Garo Rice Relish

Serves 2

Want to add some heat in this cold weather? Some Manado spices will do the trick. As I have told you in my earlier post that I love Manado food so much that I just can’t control myself if I go to Manado stalls for lunch. I will not stop until I get gastric pain (this happens only when I am in my fave stall. Spanish Mackerel is in season and I spiced it up with some garo relish. Yummy with hot rice.

500 gr boneless Spanish Mackerel, cut into 4 cm dices
1 lime, take the juice
1 tsp salt

3 garlic cloves

1 small onion, cut into thin slices

1 medium half ripe tomatoes, cut into dices
1 lemon grass, cut into 4 pieces then crush with the side of your knife
