One of our favorite dish that we always have whenever we visit Bali. It’s probably the combination of beautiful ambience overlooking a beautiful beach stretched far into the horizon, toes burried in the white sand, fresh coconut juice off the shells and everything else that makes the grilled fish in this Jimbaran Beach taste beautifully sweet and succulent.
The recipe is modified from Business Bali online. A pretty good recipe, although we can tell there’s a subtle flavour that’s missing. Probably those coconut shell charcoal grill taste. Very possible. I subs red snapper with grouper fish, which is more common here. *in case you forget, we live in a middle of a grassland 😛 *
