After the Christmas festivities, with all the good food overflowing, not to mention the weight gain (*sigh*), I'm back in the kitchen with a vengeance! The object of desire- bangus fillet. Also, the red wine is a New Year's Eve leftover. I don't really love red wines except that this one comes in a nice bottle so we bought it anyway. And as everyone in my family knows, frying is my waterloo and I don't want to waste good fish. We love bangus fillet at home and since yaya is on vacay, I have to feed the family. It's a good thing that I have my trusted turbo nearby. I marinated the bangus fillets in red wine and added some spices and cooked it in the turbo until it's brown enough. I added some steamed beans as side dish and sinandomeng rice. Yummy!
Michelin Star restaurants are suddenly multiplying especially in the Southeast Asean region with lots of homegrown restaurants getting the international recognition it deserves. One such restaurant is Putien, whose dishes can be traced back to Fujian, China. Putien was awarded a 1-Star Michelin in 2016, this was in Singapore where the restaurant originated. It has then expanded with several restaurants in SG and in other countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China.
