Fish in Coconut Milk...love this!

Nope, I didn't cook that but I helped...a bit. lol. I watched since I wanted to be able to cook this on my own.

First you prepare the ingredients:
coconut milk (2 extractions), fresh fish (we normally use barilis [blue-fin tuna, i think?] for this dish), pepper, salt, and chili.
*if you use the barilis, you have to twist and pull out -yes, PULL-out- the tails...not really sure why, but they said that there is something in the tail that might cause an allergic reaction...?) 

Next, place the cleaned and prepared fish in coconut milk (second extract), together with salt, pepper, and chili. Since we wanted the fish to be really soft, we kept it simmering in low heat for about an hour, or so. Then the thick coconut milk was added, and left to simmer for another five more minutes. You can add in more salt and pepper if you want, at this stage....after that, it's ready to serve!

Yummy with steamed rice... :)

Mai, i only used a pinch of salt when i fried the tofu. I did not add more after gi mix na nako together because am trying to cut off sodium as much as possible. practice ko mag kaon ug bland food. :( bt once a week id surely treat myself for something really really nice and normal. hahaha

...bitaw, i should try getting used to eating with less salt, too. lisud na magkasakit... :)

thanks, Halie
...sure! here's the rice....lol. ;)

thanks, Jenn
...ah, yes! usually i also eat the chili together with the fish. tastes way better when eaten that way. the only downside is that i also get to consume more rice! lol

many thanks for playing again, ladies!
