Ikan bilis translated from Maly literally means “fish anchovy”.  It belongs to Anchovies family, tiny shape in size but full of iron and calcium in nutrients.  It is also an essential ingredient in a local delicious dish Nasi Lemak (coconut rice).  I would have thought that Ikan bilis is the smallest fish that I have known of, but surprisingly it is not true.
