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!
I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!
