In this recipe you can use fresh water fish, but salt water fish can be used as subtitute. In the restaurant that serving West Java cuisine where Ikan Pepes is always on the menu, very common to use Carp fish.

Most people prefer to use a whole fish. I prefer fish fillet because it has less bones than a whole fish.
