Hake Roe in Sticky Rice ( Kai Bla Yang )


This is a dish I use to eat when I was a child, it's a barbecued fish roe (in this case a hake, but cod roe works equally well) wrapped into a sticky rice parcel. In the photograph on the right, is a cooked but unwrapped roe.

200 gms Hake Roe
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 White Pepper
1 Tablespoon Oil
Cooked Sticky Rice
Aluminium Foil

1. Add salt to the hake roe, add white pepper, and oil and mix together.
2. Wrap each roe in foil. Roe's are often in two parts, one part to one piece of foil is best.
3. Grill the foil parcels on the barbecue for 5 minutes, if you don't have a barbecue ready, you can also dry fry it in the tin foil.
4. Flatten a lump of sticky rice in your hands, place a roe in the middle, and wrap the sticky rice around it - it's as simple as that.
