Asian Taste 86 – Pecel Lele

Original
$8.00 spicy

At roadside food stands in Indonesia, pecel lele (“Peh-chel Lay-lay”)—tenderized, marinated, deep-fried catfish—is traditionally eaten by hand. Patience is required: Ask for your fish to be cooked a bit longer and crispier, and nibble cautiously, working around the little bones by touch rather than by sight. The chili sauce, inflected with shrimp paste, is finger-lickin’ good.
