Recipes for The Lenten Season

In the Philippines where the Lenten Season is strictly observed by the majority of the populace, seafood prices tends to skyrocket during this time. This is also the time when vegetables especially monggo are being favored and meat takes a backseat. But we all love seafood at home and we are not that really mindful of the price since it goes back to its normal rate after Easter.

I have here some recipes (easy-to-prepare) that I'd like to share with you. :)

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

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!

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
