On the 28th of May, FHTM research team went on a recce (riki) mission to Pekan, Pahang. The mission is to identify the boarders of Pekan districts... along the way we manage to find lots of interesting thing, especially along the coastal area, the view was very magnificent....
Sata was created due to over supply of fish in those days (thousand years ago) hehehe... so the fishermen try to preserve the fish another way, instead of salting it or drying the fish, they blend and mash it with grated coconut add some seasoning and wallah!! Sata is created....
pic 1 shows the signage, pic 2 the starting of the process deboning the fish, pic 3 grated the coconut, pic 4 mixing all the ingredient
then the mixture is wrapped in banana leaves, shaped like a cone....
then skewed on a skewer so that its easy to grill them
the ingredient for sata is:
1) Flesh of ikan tamban
2) Grated coconut
3) Red onion
4) Cili padi
5) Daun kunyit
Yeh that's us having a go at Sata... to tell you the truth, the sata was moist, sweet, and if we have it right after it was taken of the grill still smoking hot, I tell you my friends it melts in your mouth..
for me, although I've tasted Sata before from other place, but it cannot beat the taste of Sata at Tanjung Selangor Pekan Pahang.... the experience complete my mission at Pekan... huhuhuhu!
