Delicious Pindang Serani

Once, some friends and I went to Jepara, a small city in the northern Central Java, about 5 hours drive from Yogyakarta. Around 2 p.m. wet got to the Kartini beach. For late lunch, we tried to find Pindang Serani, the sea food typical of Jepara. The materials used can be milkfish, catfish, pomfret, grouper or snapper.


Of course, I prepared my gear and happily to capture the cooking process, for a photo stocks. The spices used: the crushed lemongrass and galangal, ginger, onion and turmeric. You can use tomatoes or star fruits to create a sour taste.


First, cut the fish then rub with lemon juice and salt, allow some time to let the flavors mingle. Boil the water, put all the ingredients, and then wait until boiling. After that put all the pieces of seasoned fish, cook over low heat until cooked.

The cuisine is very suitable to eat at noon, with coconut ice as a drink. At least that was we had, enjoying the delicious Pindang Serani, at the coolness of Kartini beach, Jepara.




  1. Wow it looks very tempting Mas :hehe. And the fish used is huge, too.
    Ah I want to eat that very much, since I love fish! :)).
