Fried Fish in Vinegar

pinoyrecipes's picture
Paksiw na isda is probably one of my least favorite Filipino dish. Why? It’s because I grew up eating this and sometimes for weeks. We were so poor that we couldn’t afford to buy any meat at all. This is the only food that was easy for mom to cook and what was available.
  Tilapia fillets/Any fish of your choice 6
  Vinegar 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Garlic head 1 , crushed
  Sliced ginger 1 Teaspoon
  Salt To Taste
  Ground pepper To Taste
  Olive oil/Cooking oil 2 Tablespoon
  Butter 2 Tablespoon

Place the sliced ginger at the bottom of the pan.
Put a layer of fish fillet and top it salt, pepper, and crushed garlic. Do it over for the rest of the fish fillets.
Put enough vinegar to cover the fish.
Simmer it on low for a long time. Do not stir.
When the vinegar has almost evaporated, put some more salt if desired.
Then put some butter if you want.
Finally, put some olive oil and let it fry for a few minutes.
Serve with rice.
