On Thursday January 3rd 2008, I posted Be Pasih Mepanggang which need Base Be Pasih to marinate. This is not a condiment, but a spice paste for several fish and seafood recipes in Balinese culinary, beside Be Pasih Mepanggang, it is also can be used for Sate Lilit Seafood Bali (Balinese Minced Seafood Sate) and Pesan Be Pasih (Balinese Grilled Fish in Banana Leaves)
