How To Make: Portugese-Style Spicy Baked Scad


  • 6 pcs Dried Chili – with seeds, soaked to hydrate
  • 3 pcs Red Chili – with seeds
  • 1 pcs Red Birds Eye Chili – with seeds (optional)
  • 1 medium size Red Onion
  • 4 pcs Shallots
  • 1/2 thumb-size Ginger
  • 2 cloves Garlic
  • 1 pcs Lemongrass – bashed
  • 1 Lime – juiced
  • 1 tsp Tauchu (fermented soybean paste)
  • 2 tsp Cooking Oil
  • 2 tsp Fish Sauce
  • 1 medium size Shrimp Scad – cleaned
  • 1 pcs Banana Leaf – cleaned
  • 3 pcs Okras/Ladyfingers – thick slices
  • 4 tbsp Water
  • Pinch of salt, white pepper & sugar – to taste
  • 2 pcs Kaffir Lime Leaves – julienne
  • Aluminum foil or parchment paper – as parcel
  • 1/4 stalk Scallions – julienne


  1. Preheat oven to 200 deg. C
  2. Blitz all the chili paste ingredients in a food processor to a fine paste
  3. In a non-stick pan, fry the sambal until fragrant and oils separated. Add in water a bit at a time to prevent paste from burning. Once done, season with salt, pepper and sugar to taste
  4. Lay the banana leaf on aluminum foil. Take 1 spoonful of the sambal and spread as bed. Then place the fish. Pour in & smother the remaining sambal paste onto the scad. Scatter the julienne kaffir lime leaves and sliced okras. Fold the foil to seal. On an heat-proof tray, place the parcel into the oven and let it cook for 20 minutes.

How we package your order?

The vacuum sealed seafood products and frozen chill packs, which contain non-toxic gel are packed in a polystyrene box, so the chill packs distribute the cold evenly throughout your fish and seafood, ensuring maximum freshness.

We seal the polystyrene box with packing tape and hand it to our cold chain logistic to deliver to you.

What should I do when my order arrives? 

Remove your seafood products as soon as possible from the box, refrigerate all fresh items and freeze all frozen goods until you are ready to prepare them for consumption.

How is your frozen seafood handled? What is your freezing process?

Our fish and shellfish are processed and immediately frozen in our -45°c blast freezer. No chemicals or preservatives are added during the freezing or production process on any of our seafood items.

What is a -45 Degree Freezer and how does it affect the seafood when defrosted?

Blast freezing seafood products at a lower temperature keeps the wall of the cell intact, ensuring that water from the inside does not exit. When defrosted, the quality, texture, and appearance will remain completely intact just as if it were a fresh product.  

What is the proper way to defrost frozen seafood products? 

If you have received frozen seafood and placed it in the freezer, remove these items from the freezer and store them in the refrigerator for at least one day before you plan to serve it. Allow 12 to 24 hours for the product to properly defrost. Do not rush the defrosting process as it can affect the flavor and texture of your seafood.  

Why are some seafood products unavailable from time-to-time?

The availability of seafood products depends upon the season, weather, and other conditions that can affect a catch or harvest. Additionally, the harvesting of many seafood products is regulated in order to maintain a sustainable supply.
