Ikan roa is a smoked flying fish/smoked garfish from Manado (North Sulawesi). This fish is smoked up to the level of drought nearly reached 90%, so this fish becomes dry and hard. Ikan roa usually fried until crispy and blend together with chillies, shallots and tomato.

- salt and sugar to taste
- Fry fish until dry or for about 5 minutes and fry garlic and shallots 1-2 minutes.
