Fish with yellow sauce (Ikan bumbu kuning)

Normally if I want to eat fish, I almost never fried it, not that I don’t like eating fried fish, but because afterwards I had to clean the kitchen thoroughly, I would hate to have the smell that sticks everywhere. Today is my monthly ” kitchen’s cleaning” day anyway, so I dare to make this satisfying fish dish


  • 1 medium fresh water fish (tilapia)
  • lemon juce from 1/2 lemon
  • Vegetable oil to fry
  • 1 carrot (sliced narrowly)
  • 1cucumber (sliced narrowly)
  • 3 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 1 stick of lemon grass
  • 2 lemon leaves
  • 2 tbs vegetable oil
  • 2 tbs powder coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 /2 tsp turmeric
  • 1tbs natural vinegar
  • Salt


  1. Marinate the fish with salt and lemon juice for at least 30 minutes, but not more than 3 hours.
  2. Fry fish until golden brown set aside
  3. Heat 2 tbs oil in a saute pan, add garlic, lemon leaves and lemon grass, saute for 1-2 minutes, add carrot, mix it well with the herbs, add coconut milk and water, mix well, add turmeric and vinegar, mix, add salt and cucumber, mix and saute for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Pour the hot sauce over the fish, serve it hot with rice.
