Pinaputok na Tilapia

25 Nov

We bought live Tilapia in the market today. I though it would be a shame to just fry up fresh fish so I thought of making pinaputok na tilapia instead. I know there are a lot of ways to do this recipe.

Pinaputok na Tilapia


2 pieces Tilapia

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 onion, minced

1 small ginger, minced

1 tomato, diced

2 tbsp fresh calamansi juice

2 tbsp soy sauce

  1. Mix the ingredients except for the Tilapia, in a bowl.
  2. Scoop the mixed ingredients and stuff it in the Tilapia’s belly.
  3. Put some of the mixture in a laid out foil, put the stuffed Tilapia on top of it, then put some more mixture on top. Fold the sides of the foil and wrap the Tilapia tightly.
  4. Put it in a pan and cover. Wait 4 to 5 minutes then turn the Tilapia. Cook for another 4 to 5 minutes. You will know it’s cooked when the foil looks like it’s about to pop open.




Fish with Tomato and Egg Sauce

This is my version of what they call Sarciadong Isda. This is a very simple dish and you can do this from left over fried fish. They normally cook sarciado without the tomato sauce, but I just added that for that extra tomato taste.

3 cloves garlic, sliced
