Really recommended! I was sceptical about using mackerel, but it Worked so well. Will do again and again (especially since it's such good value!)

This recipe was REALLY quick, easy, tasty and cheap to do too. All qualities I love! My only comment would be that it was quite salty. Also I did add more thai paste than suggested. I will be making it again though.

Not entirely sure what's 'Indonesian' about it...but all the same it's a really tasty,simple & quick midweek supper with punchy flavours. Great use for leftover rice.
