Ikan Goreng Rica-Rica (Fried Mackarel in Manadonese Style Sweet And Spicy Sauce)

This dish is originated from North Sulawesi (North Celebes). The capital of the province is called Manado.

Manadonese loves spicy & hot food, if you think this dish is less spicy, try add more chillies from what have been written below.

The crispiness of the fish depends on your frying technique. Some people love eating it with crispy taste but some doesn't, so I leave it all to you...


  • 3 mackerel
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 6 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp palmsugar (gula jawa)
  • 2 tbsp rice vinager
  • 3 salam leaves
  • 2 jeruk purut / kaffir lime leaves
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 4 cm jahe (ginger)
  • 3 shallots
  • 3 cm laos (galangal)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 red lomboks (large chilies)

How to:

  1. Pound or grind the ingredients for the seasoning into a paste.
  2. Cut the tomatoes in thin slices.
  3. Heat in a wok the oil and fry the fish brown and done.
  4. Put the fish on a plate.
  5. Add the bumbu (seasoning) and fry it for 3 minutes.
  6. Then add the salam, the jeruk purut, the tomatoes, the palmsugar, the salt and the rice vinager and let it simmer slowly for 5 minutes.
  7. Pour the sauce over the fish and serve.

hi, i am portuguese and have been in bali last year and met a few friends from sumatra who took me to a traditional restaurant of theyre region and i ate Sak Sang and Babi Panggang Medan. i wanted to know how to cook it but i can't seem to find the recipe anywhere in the internet and i wonder if you could help me.
i remember the meal started with a soup of chiken broth which you put on top of the rice and there was some kind of meat and a hot bloody sauce and one hot lemon sauce.
i dont remember much more but i ate the whole meal with my hands.

best regards, miguel
