Ikan Bilis / Dried Anchovy


125 grams – Grade AAA

Ikan Bilis as they are known in Malaysia, Indonesia and Southeast Asia are small tiny dried white anchovy fish that the English-speaking world call dried anchovies.

Ikan bilis when cooked are crispy, crunchy and a little salty, you can eat them as they are, or mix them with other ingredients to make tasty snacks like fried ikan bilis with peanut and chips or mix them with chili and make a hot Malaysian chili sauce called  Sambal Ikan Bilis for nasi lemak and many more Indonesian and Malaysian recipes.

When cooking dried anchovies, there needs to be enough oil in the pan to cover the fish. The oil needs to be heated on high until it is hot, and then just before adding the ikan bilis reduce the flame to medium high.

Cook the fish in batches, stirring them from time to time until they become a dark golden-brown color.

If you don’t cook them long enough, they won’t be crispy and crunchy when they cool, instead they will have a rubbery texture. Once cooked allow them to drain on absorbent paper.
