Mackerel Run Dung


I love this fish dish.The key to this dish is the combination of the spices and coconut milk

What you need:

  • 2lb salted mackerel
  • 1 can of coconut milk (or make your own fresh)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 onion
  • 3 scallion
  • 2 tomatoes
  • A few sprigs of thyme (about 4 or 5)
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • vinegar, black pepper and salt to taste (generally about 1 or 2 teaspoons of each)
  • 1 tablespoon butter (I add this because it give the dish a nice flavor)

Soak mackerel in water to get reid of the excess salt, changing water regularly. Boil the mackerel for 15 minutes then allow to cool. You can remove the mackerel heads if you want to. For me, less bones, more succulent pleasure. Then cut the fish in to small pieces and remove bones. Chop the onion, scallion, tomato and garlic. Combine the coconut milk and water in a saucepan, bring to the boil then turn the heat down to simmer. Add onion, scallion, tomato, garlic and thyme, cook for 10 minutes more.
If sauce is still watery, mix 1 tablespoon of flour in 1/4 cup of water and stir in to the mixture.

When finished you can serve it with traditional green banana and flour dumpling. Or you can use rice. A nice salad adds to the meal.
