Never cook river fish before, and this was my 1st time ( sorry ya, it seemed I have so many 1st time dish, hehehe). This Tilapia fish was given by my elder sister who bought this fish from her husband's hometown (Ulu Yam), you can find big and fresh river fish here. Since the lemongrass in my garden has grown so many, so I use lemongrass to cook this Tilapia fish as to get rid of fishy smell..
Simple recipe to share
1 Tilapia fish (cut out fish meat, marinate with chopped lemongrass, tumeric powder, salt, light soy sauce, sugar)
5-6 stalks of lemongrass, crushed
spring onion, cut into long strips
