Simple Sweet Spicy Honey Grilled Fish Recipe


Honey Grilled Fish Recipe is a method of processing fish by burning on a Teflon pan or grilling it with a splash of spices and honey. So it produces a spicy and sweet taste with fairly simple processing.

In addition to the usual Honey Grilled Fish recipe, there is also a typical Lombok Island, Indonesian recipe. However, this time we are only practicing a simple Honey Grilled Fish recipe using Dorang fish.

How to know the real honey

Besides Dorang fish, real honey is also the main ingredient in the Honey Grilled Fish recipe. In the market, there are many sellers who claim to sell real honey, even though there are some irresponsible people who offer fake honey.

Well, here are some ways to find out if honey is really real:

1. Use Tissue

You can drip honey on a paper towel to determine the level of authenticity. Mixing honey with water will make it easier for the tissue to absorb. So, the tissue gets wet. However, it is different from real honey which will not be easily absorbed into white tissue or cloth.                                 

2. Water Test  

Pour in 1 tsp of honey, then mix it with a full glass of water. Real honey has a dense texture, so it will settle to the bottom of the glass. In contrast to fake honey, which dissolves more quickly with water.          

3. Use Vinegar

You can mix 1 tablespoon of honey with a little water and also 2-3 drops of vinegar. If the mixture produces foam, it could be that the honey you bought is fake honey.    

4. Check the Composition

Usually, on the honey packaging, there is a list of several additional substances in the honey product. So, you can find out how much real honey is in the product. Instead, choose a product that contains higher original honey than the mixture.

5. Use Thumbs

Drop a little honey over your thumb, then watch if the honey will spread or drip. If the honey drips or spreads, it is a sign that the honey is fake. Because real honey will directly stick to the surface of the object that is applied and does not drip easily.

6. Test with Fire

Dip or grease a matchstick in honey. If the match is lit, it means that the honey is real. However, if the match doesn’t light up, you can be sure you’ve bought fake honey.

7. Heat Honey

Real honey when you heat it will not foam and quickly caramelize. On the other hand, fake honey will not bubble and will caramelize when you heat it.
