I intended to put "mini" on the title of this post..yes..when I said just grilled mixed seafood the other day, one of my friends said "wow..it's luxury"..he might have thought bout lobster, salmon, king crab, or any other giant-expensive seafood...Too bad, none of those cooked this time. I just purchased the mixed cut seafood, the one with small-tiny-little creatures...But don't worry, it still taste heavenly when you know what to put with and how to cook.
So we are just 3 x 24h away from Christmas..and this should be good for dinner.
- 2 packages of mixed seafood
- 1 lime
- 1 Tbsp vegetable oil for sauteing
- 6 cloves of garlic, grated
- 4cm of ginger, grated
- 70g of crushed baked peanut (I like it smooth)
- 1 Tbsp of ketchup/tomato sauce
- 1 Tbsp of oyster sauce
- 4 Tbsp of Indonesian sweet soy sauce (kecap manis)
- 1 Tbsp of fish sauce
- 2 Tbsp of brown sugar
- 1 tsp of ground white pepper
- 100ml water
Sprinkle lime juice over the seafood and let it stand for 15min. Saute grated garlic and ginger with a little bit oil until fragrant. Add crushed peanuts and the rest of the ingredients, except the seafood. Mix it well and continue to cook until boiling. Add the seafood and stir. Continue to cook for 3min. Take out all of the seafood (do not discard the sauce) and place them on a baking tray. Broil them for 10-15min until done. Continue to cook the sauce until boiling again and serve it as a side dish.
