One of the hallmarks of @laut.singapore is how they take familiar ingredients and present them in unexpected ways. The simply named Otah is anything but. If the fish is its sheath, than surely the eotah stuffed within is its blade – pointedly sharp on flavour from a blend of mackerel, squid and aromatic rempah. The bold and spicy otah is complemented by the clean, meaty taste of the grilled barramundi.

Even the garnishes are great and only serve to further enhance the hero of the dish. The fish is topped with vibrant achar and on the side are pickled onions – the mildly acidic tang and firm crunch of both contrast fantastically with the seafood. Not forgetting the superlative sambal which of course you should liberally apply onto every inch of the fish.
