Sepat Banang (Fish Dish From Sumbawa)

Sumbawa is a beautiful island of Indonesia. It has unique cultures. Most of its residents are from Sasak, Bima, Sumbawa and Bali ethnic groups. But unfortunately its culinary richness is still not widely exposed even to Indonesians. So it's still a lot more to explore from this unique island that is still considered as a neighbor to Bali which most of foreigners already know.

The recipe below is taken from an Amazing book by the author that compiled many Original Indonesian Recipes, Sri Owen, in "Indonesian Regional Cooking"
