Something Fishy


Another favourite place of ours is to visit the fish markets.  If you are a lover of all things fishy you will be in seafood heaven here.  Coming down early in the morning when the fishing trawlers arrive back with their latest catch is the best time to buy fresh seafood to take home.   The hustle and bustle of vendors, restauranteurs and locals purchasing their fresh seafood makes for a lively event. 
Today we decided to come down for a quick bite for lunch.  Vendors calling out as we were walking around trying to entice us into their eateries.  With so many types of seafood laid out on ice the hardest decision is deciding what to choose.  Its a no brainer for me today I'm having the Ikan Bakar as I have many times before.  Fish seasoned with chili, turmeric, lemongrass and shrimp paste, wrapped in a banana leaf and grilled over charcoal and topped with sambal.   So we grab a chilled beer and a fresh orange juice, take a seat at the waterfront while our meal is being cooked and admire the breathtaking views of the ocean and people watch.  
After another awesome meal we purchased some fresh prawns and headed home.
