"This recipe is spiced up using Asian chili paste - sambal belachan - doesn't taste as good if you omit it! Salmon, clams, mussels, etc. may be used in place of squid."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

shallots, finely chopped
garlic, peeled and crushed
fresh lime juice
salt and pepper to taste
squid, cleaned and sliced into rings
1 banana leaf
I made this because my fiance loves squid but wanted to try something different. I was going to use tin foil instead of the banana leaf, but I realized that we had one of those trees in our back yard!
The next time I make this I will watch carefully the cooking time and NOT cover the grill (I overcooked this batch, cooking 15 mins with lid on). I will also use 1/2 the cumin. But otherwise this is a very good recipe and I can't wait to try it again!
This recipe is terrific - we've tried it on salmon & trout. We made it for friends who said it was the best fish they've ever eaten.
I used dory fish. I do not if it was because I used fish instead of squid but it was way too salty. The belachan was overwhelming.
