Though I love fishes, Emoticon only domesticated fishes, I really do not know what’s the name of the fish that my mom used and prepared — Paksiw na Isda (Fish in Vinegar) shown in the above image.

Let me share to you the ingredients in making Paksiw na Isda. Smiley

Of course one needs the fish — any kinds of fish will do. Vinegar, this is the most important ingredient aside from the fish itself. One should also prepare garlic. Onions, for me, is not necessary but many prefers Paksiw na Isda to have garlic.

These are just the things to prepare. See? It’s really easy and very affordable. So now, let’s start cooking. Haha!

Cooking Paksiw na Isda (Fish in Vinegar) ain’t really that hard. If preparing its ingredients is very simple, how much more cooking it? LOL! As far as I experience, I just arrange all the above mentioned ingredients in a cooking pan. And set the stove in a low continuous heating. This is to allow the vinegar to be slowly absorbed by the fish meat.

Are you ready now in preparing your own Paksiw na Isda (Fish in Vinegar)? Smiley

Grilled Fish Ala Pobre

Yesterday was my classmate and a close friend in medical school’s birthday, Jaymineth. Smiley Even though I wasn’t really feeling good yesterday and haven’t fully recovered yet, in fact, I was still feverish yesterday, I really attended her bashful lunch celebration together with other classmates and friends from medical school.

We dine at Casa Verde Resto located near the Crown Hotel, here in Cebu City. Since I have had hard time to swallow hard foods yet, I just opted to order this softly-cooked grilled fish ala pobre.

As mentioned above, the fish was grilled enough not too hard but really soft. If I wasn’t wrong, it was garnished with oil and added with minced garlic. The fish meat was so tasty – enough to my salty choice of taste.

Unfortunately, when I about to ask the waiter to what specific fish they prepared for me, he refuse to tell and just deny that he didn’t know what the name of the fish was. I just wish to know it because I am thinking of suggesting the grilled fish to be prepared this coming holidays at home. And oh, talking about holidays, I am actually wishing to find cheap holidays package deals or even hotels reservation for the upcoming Christmas party of the BisDak Bloggers in CDO. Hopefully, before the event day, I could find one.
