If you are a fan of ikan bilis also known as anchovies, you would definitely appreciate it when they are crispier! It adds that tasty crunch to your meal!
So if you would like to ensure that when you cook them, be sure to use this USEFUL TIP!
The secret ingredient to add is VINEGAR!
So how do you do it?
- First wash the anchovies well, then drain the excess water. Leave it to dry off for at least 2 hours. (Some people are scared to wash it, because they are worried about making the anchovies soft. However, this should not be a concern though. Plus, you should definitely ALWAYS wash ingredients cleanly before eating. ESPECIALLY MEAT OR SEAFOOD.)
2. Then heat up your pan. Without using any oil, add in the anchovies and saute them for a little while.
3. Add the vinegar into the pan. Pour in as much as you think is appropriate according to the amount of anchovies being cooked.
4. Mix the vinegar and anchovies well. (you can mix with your hands too if the pan is not too hot)
5. Then take them out of the pan. Add in some oil and turn up the heat. Wait till the oil is really heated up and bubly, then add in the anchovies and fry them.
6. Once they appear to look golden brown, you can take them out.
7. You are done!
