“This recipe is from week 15 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Ashmore and Cartier is my 15th stop. Because these two islands are really just a small, unpopulated marine preserve, this recipe actually comes from Indonesia. Traditional Indonesian fishermen have fishing rights in the waters off Ashmore and Cartier. I made this recipe as a side dish to go with clam satay (clam is one of the species harvested there).”
