Malaysia Pangkor Island / Sitiawan Perak

The fish satay factory in Pangkor Island, Hai Seng Hin (海成兴沙爹渔场),  is a nice place to do a bit of souvenir and snack shopping.

The store’s speciality is the fish satay on sticks and other fishy snacks like prawn crackers,

fish crackers,

dried & shredded cuttlefish (aka “sotong”),

and more cuttlefish, to be specific, the baby ones.  The two pictures above are baby cuttlefish heads that are a bit cheaper than the body-only cuttlefish as they are tougher in texture (RM 7 for 100g) .

You’ll find everyday cooking ingredients here like dried anchovies, aka ikan bilis,

and all kinds of salted fish, big or small.  They are not exactly the healthiest things to eat, but they do add fantastic flavors to stir fries.

Some of the rarer seafood items are found here too like the sea cucumbers,

fish swim bladders (aka fish maws),

and dried oysters.  These are less common in our daily meals, but these things are the star ingredients during Chinese New Year reunion dinners & lunches.

All the items are available from various souvenir shops on the Island, mostly located near the jetty, but I find the satay factory right by the sea with small villages around it (and the big octopus!) rather charming 🙂
