This viand is very common and just plain for others, but for me, being away from my homeland, it is like heaven already.
I got the fish from MelVicky International store in Reno for $2.99 per pack (4 pcs/pack). I usually make a paksiw out of it because I can just reheat it whenever I crave for a fish dish.
Pirit/Tulingan fish or any kind of fish
Salt and pepper
Wash and drain the fish thoroughly. Arrange in a pot. Put vinegar, garlic , ginger and whole peppercorn. I used 1/2 cup of vinegar for 4 (small size) fish. Put salt and pepper to taste. Cook in a medium heat until it boils then turn the heat down for like 10 minutes or until the fish is cooked. Top it with eggplant or bitter melon if desired, 5 minutes before you turn off the fire. Make sure to salt the veggies when added.
Thank you for dropping by! Have a good one!
