Five favorite fish

"Fish, not fishes?" a Thai student tries to clear up his confusion. "I know..." I wink while going through plural rules with them, "wait until the 'last leaf clings to the bough. It will get really tough.'"

I love fish. It's a staple part of my diet whether at home or when dining out. But I don't know many of their names and when that is the case I identify them according to where or when I ate them. These are five of my favorite fish:

Kinilaw or raw tuna chunks soaked in coconut vinegar, salt and refined sugar; and mixed with purple onion, ginger, chili and cucumber. This was during one of those summer vacations in the Philippines. Kinilaw is a native Filipino fish dish.

Lapu-lapu escabeche or sweet and sour lapu-lapu. These are ginger, carrot and bell pepper strips. I can't find the pineapples but I think there were. The son must have eaten them already when I took this photo.

Skipjack stew - cooked with vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, onion, and black pepper in low heat for at least half an hour.

Salmon a la bumba. Mother's Day high tea this year at Coffee Beans by Dao

Deep sea fried is, according to a girl friend, "bejeweled with shredded green mango, carrot, basil and cashew nuts." Day 1 dinner, oceanfront balcony of Saffron on the Sea, Elephant Island.

  4. Every bit of that looks tasty! Very well photographer too, food photos can be difficult.

  5. Great recipes, - I am very fond of fish, but am not as creative when cooking it.

  6. Yummy! I love asian food. I used to cook Indonesian food, but now I am alone and spend not much time to cook a meal for myself, even if I eat a warm meal every day.
    Have a great day Hazel, I am glad I finally found your blog.

  7. I love fish as well. We live on the coast in New England so it's a fairly staple part of our diet

  8. I love all these FINE FISH and wish I could share them with you! Kate, ABC Team

  9. Come on over. We have plenty! :)

  10. I love fish, but either battered (typically British!) or without any frills, only vinegar and salt. Sometimes I do it in the microwave (low number) and covered loosely, sprinkled with seasoned salt and butter. Fresh tuna steaks are great like this.
