    Even if you dont have banana leaves, these are still fun to wrap in foil and grill.

    Hi, thanks for sharing this recipe! I found it a bit funny since ‘otak udang’ is an expression in Indonesian akin to ‘bird brain.’ Maybe similar in Malay?
    Will give it a try over the weekend. Great website btw!

    I made this recipe…used dried kaffir lime leaves instead of fresh….had the otak otak flavour but found it very salty….I wonder whether the frozen shrimp could be the culprit.
