ikan bilis of sorts

Take one bag of dried anchovies, throw in a pot, cover with water and simmer for five minutes. Drain in a colander. Meanwhile, fry up LOTS and LOTS of chopped garlic and the two last chillies from the garden. Add the fish and try not to worry about them looking up at you. Serve with rice as per the last post.

Who knows if it’s the right way to do it, but it tasted OK. Too bad I’ve got a thing about unsustainable over-fishing now. Unless we can find an ethical alternative to the shrink-wrapped ocean-depleting dried fish from the local Chinese vege-shop-cum-dry-goods-store, we shan’t be eating it again. Even though it brought back wonderful memories to Father Bear who chomped his childhood away on ikan bilis.
