One of the main highlights of Bali are the night markets that come to life at dusk till late night. These are outdoor eateries that are famous around many of the Asian countries. They are a pure pleasure to experience! The smells, flavours, action are not to be missed at all. A trip to Bali is not complete without trying the night market. Amongst the many exotic flavours you are definately going to find these BBQ fish Koftas on Lemon Grass
6 lemon grass sticks, trimmed
600g skinned boneless fresh fish fillet
1 cup desiccated coconut, moistened with water or coconut milk
2 tbsp red curry paste
5 lime leaves, chiffonade
3 red chilies, finely chopped (you can use less or you can discard the seeds for a less spicy option)
Salt & ground black pepper to taste
In a food processor, place the fish fillets and process till totally minced.
In a large bowl, add all the other ingredients, and the minced fish. Mix well. take 100g fish and mould around the lemon grass skewers. BBQ over direct heat till done, and golden on all sides.
