RECIPE: TKG'S Citrus Mackerel

During the Holy Week season in the Philippines, the tradition of refraining from eating meat is observed. And that is why fish and other seafood dishes are quite popular during Holy Week. Sharing my easy-to-prepare Mackerel recipe.


Ingredients:

Uni-Pak Mackerel, 425g can
1 clove garlic, peeled
10 pcs Black Olives, sliced
6-8 slice of Orange Peels ** you can just use calamansi or lemon juice instead of orange peel
Chili flakes (I used Habanero salt)
salt to taste
Olive Oil


Directions:

Heat pan (preferably non-stick) and add oil. Add orange peels and garlic, remove from pan until it is almost brown and fragrant. Sear all side of the Mackerel, add the black olives and sprinkle with the habanero salt (chili flakes + salt). Add the garlic and orange peels before serving. Good for 2 pax.

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!
