Asam Pedas Ikan Pari

Asam Pedas Ikan Pari

Today, I am going to teach you how to cook “Peranakan” or “Nyonya” dish – “Asam Pedas”. It can be cooked using a variety of seafood like the mackerel or machete, but we strongly recommend the stingray. This dish takes less than 30 minutes if you have Sambal prepared earlier.

If you’re looking for fresh, locally caught seafood, you can purchase them directly at My Fishman’s website. They do deliver to your home 😉
