Gelama Pisang.

Gelama Pisang aka Croaker fish is mostly found in both fresh and saltwater, near to muddy river banks, bays or estuaries.

When alive, the fish make a croaking sound by beating it's abdomen muscles against the swim bladder-hence the name Croaker fish.

They are usually small and medium in size and the ones that we bought weigh around 200gms.


The 1st fish stall located at the junction of the Section 17/1A Pasar Tani, Petaling Jaya sell these fish whenever it is available.

Open every Thursday morning-go early for the freshest produce.


Gelama Pisang-deep fried until it's skin was crisp and drizzled with light soy sauce-not bony with white sweet flaky flesh-delicious.

They even cut/chop/descale/slice up the fish for you at no extra cost!
