This recipe pays homage to the southern Malaysian town of Muar in Johor, where it is known to be a popular destination for otak-otak; people from surrounding states and Singapore often visit to buy the famous delicacy in bulk. Though there are many variations of otak-otak available throughout the entire South East Asia countries, this version is as close as to the one commonly found in Johor and Singapore.
