RECIPE: TKG's Blue Marlin in Cilantro Salsa

Because its almost Holy Week and fish dishes are nom derigueur, I am sharing a simple and easy-to-cook but super healthy dish. For this recipe, I chose Blue Marlin but you can use any other fish.


Ingredients:

250 g blue marlin, cubed
5-6 medium sized tomatoes, cubed
ginger slices
cilantro, 1 bunch
onions (optional)
2 tbs olive oil (Dona Elena)
rock salt, as desired
half lemon or lime (optional)




Make sure that the oil will coat the pan evenly, if not add some more. Fry the ginger slices until you can smell the aroma then add the tomatoes. Stir-fry and cover the pan so that the tomato will cook from its natural juice. You need to add the cilantro before the tomatoes get overcooked, then add some salt. Throw in the fish and coat it well with the sauce so that it will soak in the flavors. Cover and let it cook for a few more minutes then its done. Squeeze some lemon or lime for added flavor. Serves 2-3

    1. You can omit cilantro and add in some onions which I didn't ...the dish would still taste the same except for the cilantro flavor :)

Ilustrado Restaurant Anniversary Degustation

Jose Rizal and the Spanish era are synonymous with the word Ilustrado but for me, what comes to mind is this restaurant in Intramuros, Manila. Coincidentally though, Intramuros was once called the Walled City and is rich in history and glamor of the bygone days when Spain ruled the country. Visiting Intramuros is like a history lesson itself and dining at Ilustrado is the cherry on top.

As Ilustrado Restaurant celebrates its 29th anniversary this October, it brings back the specially curated 8-course Ilustrado Degustation by Chef Bernice Pimentel.

"This year, 2019 marks the third year that we have been doing an anniversary degustation and this year, I am not only bringing forth our culinary heritage to the present but also incorporating much more local ingredients," says Chef Bernice.

Fat Fook Manila

Fat Fook Manila, the restaurant that's been making foodies excited with its Taiwanese noms opened its latest branch at The Globe Tower in BGC. The restaurant which has a seating capacity of about 40, also has a dedicated take-out counter should you have cravings for yummy Taiwanese snacks.

There's a lot of interesting noms from the menu but here are my favorites:

Taiwanese Sausage on sticks. I've been hearing about this amazing sausages from my friends who has been to Taiwan and its on the must-try list. And thanks to Fat Fook Manila, I don't have to fly to Taiwan to enjoy these sausages. It tastes sweet but the meat is firm and not as oily as our local sausage (longganisa). The garlic inserted on the sausages looks weird but it adds some flavor to it. I'm guessing that this sausages are best paired with a bottle of beer. ;)


Holiday Specials at Ilustrado

Filipinos pride themselves when it comes to holiday season get-togethers with family, friends, colleagues, etc. They even try to outdo each other when it comes to discovering new goodies and delicious food finds.

And because Ilustrado Restaurant knows that delicious food is a special highlight of any get-together, it has a whole array of mouthwatering choices for everyone.
