I love this snack! Otak-otak is spicy fish paste wrapped in coconut leaves and grilled over charcoal. Some people might call this “Otah”, a name I dislike. Please call it by its proper name, Otak-otak. Thank you.
We were at B@Point in Johor Baru Malaysia, just minutes from the Causeway (Singapore-Malaysian border). We ordered a quick snack while our car got a spa treatment, i.e washed and vacuumed.
The Malay word “otak” means brains. Rest assured that absolutely no brains of any animals are added. Otak=brains. Otak-otak=fish paste.
