In the holy month of Ramadhan, baked fish with gremolata is one of the main courses offered by Sea Grain Restaurant & Bar at DoubleTree by Hilton Jakarta Diponegoro, Central Jakarta.

Executive chef Zulkarnain explained the searing technique used in grilling the grouper. He said the pan and oil should be at a high temperature. Also, when the fish’s skin is already crispy and its flesh turns brown, it is time to remove the fish from the pan and proceed to the next step: oven.

“So the fish will be cooked through in the oven, not in the pan,” said Zulkarnain.

Those who like to eat fish, especially local ones, can consider trying the recipe. (kes)
