Fish and Shrimp Otak-otak
Watch out friends, this is not of that traditional otak-otak recepi. The idea of stuffing mashed dori and shrimp into crab shell came from my dear husband that I'm sure he perfected so well for my birthday dinner. The texture is smooth and the taste of shrimp and dori are attained as not much herbs in use. I like its simplicity.
2 pcs dori fillet ( from supermarket frozen box)
250 g de-shelled fresh shrimp + few drops of juice from half a lime
5-6pcs daun kaduk - shredded
1 table spoon tapioca flour
3 table spoon grated coconut - blend finely
tumeric leaf ( cut across its length about 2 inches/pc)
salt, sugar to taste
6-7 crab shell, clean up inside out
Blend dori fillet and shrimp in electric blender into a lumpy paste. Add in pre-pounded coconut, lemongrass, tapioca flour salt and sugar. Lastly mix in the shredded daun kaduk.
Lay one pc of cut tumeric leaf inside crab shell. Stuffed in the mixture to fill up the shell then cover it with another piece of tumeric leave. Arrange in steamer and let it cook well.
