myFresha-licious: Squash in Coconut milk with Fried Selar Fish

Squash in Coconut milk with Fried Selar Fish

I am not suppose to be eating squash for this week because I am staying away from carbohydrates, but I have no choice because i am lazy to go the supermarket and buy some greens.  And rather than throwing the squash into the trash bin, I’d rather cook it.  I thought of cooking the squash with coconut milk and have it with fried Selar fish.  Selar fish looks like a galunggong only flatter and wider as compared to mackerel.  It’s taste is blunt though 🙁


squash, cubed  – 180 g.

garlic, crushed – 3 cloves

Kara coconut cream – 3 tbsp

salt – 1/5 tsp


water – 100 ml

Sunflower oil – 1 tsp

Fried Selar fish – 2 hole, halved

Cooking Procedure

1) Sauté garlic in oil then add the squash when garlic is aromatic. Simmer for 2 minutes then add the water, coconut cream, salt and pepper to taste.

2) Boil until the squash is soft.

3) In another pan, fry the selar fish.

Serve together 🙂
