Weekend Cooking: Fish Bukhari Rice

During our last trip to the market, I asked Kak’mbang to pick up some fish for making this dish I was curious about, by Chef Ammar.  She took the fish out of the freezer today thinking I was going to make it for dinner, but honestly it almost slipped my mind.  When I remembered, I went downstairs to see if the fish was out of the freezer.  Seeing that it was already out it would totally ruin a good piece of fish to re-freeze it after thawing, so I decided to go ahead with it.  For today, I didn’t have some of the ingredients on hand, but the results were pretty good nonetheless.

Fish is quite unconventional in Bukhari rice, but it is a great alternative when you are feeling like something lighter.  Don’t skip the cilantro; its flavour goes really well with the fish.  We served it with Kak’mbang’s acar.  Give it a go!

Based on the recipe from Episode 4 of Chef Ammar’s cooking show.
