Satar – Terengganu’s Local Delicacy
During our stay in Awana Kijal Golf, Beach and Spa Resort, the staffs there kept on raving about a certain fish snack called satar. They kept asking us if we’ve tried it. Honestly speaking, I’ve never heard of such a snack. When I knew I am going to Terengganu, the first thing that came to mind is keropok lekor and nasi dagang but definitely not satar as I am not even aware of its existence. Pardon my ignorance :(
There are many stalls selling satar in Kuala Terengganu. They are mainly situated by the roadside.
Satar is a snack made of fish. It is a mixture of mashed fish, grated coconut, pepper, ginger, chillies, bay leaves and tumeric leaf.
Satar is wrapped in banana leaf.
The mashed fish mixture is wrapped in a coned shaped banana leaf and secured with bamboo stick.
Each of them is skewered and grilled over hot coals until golden brown. Smoky fragrant smell of banana leaf filled the air making me excited already!
The mashed fish is now ready to be eaten. Fragrant and firm, this flavorful snack is simply delicious. Sweet and spicy, I am already addicted to it!
It was my first time eating satar and already, I’m loving it! I don’t remember seeing anything like this in KL and now that I know how delicious this is, I’m sure gonna miss it a lot when I’m back in KL :(
