Ingredients

Number of serving: 5
5 pieces Tilapia

½ cup of white vinegar

2 pcs thumb-sized ginger

3 pcs finger chilies

1 medium onion, chopped

1 tsp salt

1 tsp ground pepper

You can also add some vegetables such as eggplant, okra, string beans, ampalaya (bitter gourd) and the surprisingly good "alugbati" (vine spinach or malabar nightshade), if you like.

Preparation

  • Step 1 - Fish Stew in Vinegar
    In a stainless casserole or pot, spread the chopped onion and julienned ginger on the bottom. Properly arrange the fish on top of them. Evenly sprinkle salt and pepper on top of the fish and slowly pour the vinegar and add about half a cup of water. Finally, place the finger chilies on top.
  • Step 2 - Fish Stew in Vinegar
    Over medium heat, cooked the fish uncovered. When the liquid has started boiling lower the heat and let it boil uncovered for some time for the acid of the vinegar to escape. Then place the lid back on and continue cooking on a very low heat. To enhance the flavor of the dish, add about 1 to 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil.
  • Step 3 - Fish Stew in Vinegar
    Continue cooking for about 15 minutes. Adjust the seasoning accordingly. Add some more water if you want to have more sauce like my kids. When the sauce has slightly whitens and the chilies are cooked, the fish are ready.
  • Step 4 - Fish Stew in Vinegar
    Transfer the dish to a shallow bowl and serve immediately with steamed rice. A dip of patis (fish sauce) and calamansi or lemon where the chilies could be crumbled is a nice accompaniment.
