Pretty sure I’ve blogged this recipe before, but there are probably plenty of people who missed it the first time around, so here it is. Again.

Otak-otak is a very popular street side snack in some parts of Malaysia – especially in Penang, where it is wrapped in banana leaves and steamed, and in Melaka where it is grilled in coconut leaves. My version splits the difference – it’s wrapped in banana leaves, but follows the recipe and cooking style of the southern version. In the absence of banana leaves, you could also drop spoonfuls of the filling in a pan and fry them as fishcakes.
