Fish dishes

21 March 2018

From Domestic Workers’ Corner “It’s All About Food”

A recent post in this self-help Facebook page for Filipino domestic workers who have just arrived in Hong Kong asked the question on what dish or dishes could be cooked with a type of fish commonly seen in wet markets around town.

Ignalig Jocmol asked, “Paano niyo po ito lutuin mga chef??? Gusto ko i-try. Salamat.

She uploaded the photo below.

First to respond was Marilyn M. Blanza who said:

“Buy yui lam and steam it with spring onion and ginger.

“After steaming heat some oil and pour on the steamed fish. Add soy sauce.

In a cute aside, she said: “P.S. Itapon pala yung tubig sa plate nang ini-steam mo siya. Gaya ng pagtatapon niya sa  iyo ng basta basta.”

Vina Bautista Reyes said her “hugot line: funny, to which Blanza replied, along with three smiley faces: “Hahaha, thanks sissy. Epekto ng walang kape”.

Reyes chimed in, “Kape is life hanggang makauwi tayo ng Pinas, iihi na tayo ng 3 in 1”.

Blanza added another hirit: ”Buti pa ang kape kasa-kasama mo pero ang pag ibig mo nakalimutam mo”.

Lorelie Lhen came up with two pictures of the cooked fish, one steamed with black beans on top. She also advised that the black fish with big scales in the picture is “hindi masarap.”

She also posted a picture of a second yummy-looking dish, which she simply called “with Teriyaki Sauce” and gave the following recipe:

Fish, sliced
Fish teriyaki sauce
Spring onion

1. Fry fish, then set aside.
2. Saute garlic, onion and ginger, then add (fish) teriyaki sauce. Add a little water.
3. Add the fish when the water starts to boil, then let it boil some more until fish is cooked to the desired tenderness.
4. Add spring onion then serve.

Loreli advised that for best result, Lee Kum Kee’s fish teriyaki sauce sold in individual packs at only $4.50 each should be used.
