Kerabus are side dishes meant to accompany rice. The sour tangy flavour gives a fresh taste and cuts into other rich flavours of the other meats that is served with the meal. This recipe uses mackerel which is an oil-rich fish and is a good balance to the kerabu.
unusual mix of flavours but quite popular, difficult to get all the bones out of the mackeral but I liked it and I don't even like mackerel! - 25 Mar 2012
