Saus Cuko Pempek – Palembang Fish Cake Sauce

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

Pempek are deep fried fish cakes served with its signature dark fiery sauce hailing from the city of Palembang, the provincial capital of South Sumatra. The range of fish cakes varies from the plain round balls to big triangular ones stuffed with hard boiled eggs, they are all typically deep fried in hot oil just prior to serving. The best thing about pempek is the sauce, made with palm sugar, tamarind, garlic, and Thai chilli. Making the sauce is simple enough, as long as you can find all the ingredients.
