Salted Fish

There's no better way for you to eat a good, fresh, ikan asin (salted fish) than buying it straight from the local fishermen. I forgot how much this huge fish cost, but it was less than IDR 75,000, maybe around IDR 60,000 if I can recall. If I buy it from the market it will cost more, trust me. They said that this was a local fish in the river and the dark color of the fish imitates the dark color of the river for camouflage. I don't know exactly what kind of species this is, but I do know that it was the perfect souvenir for my mother, as we had ikan asin with sambal with hot rice for 4 days in a row. Yum.
