Ginataang Talakitok

Talakitok or Cavalla Fish (refer to wikipedia), as a simple Juan I find it a bit pricy than Tilapia that I usually use in cooking. A ginataang Isda or Fish cooked in coconut milk a one delicious food for a simple filipino family. Cooking is so simple yet so yummy that even kids will love.

Correct me if I am wrong, this cooking method is known and popularized by the Bicolanos, And yey! am a proud Bicolano boy. There are many ways how to prepare this simple recipe defending on the taste buds of the cook, he or she can also adjust the taste, Either tilapia or any other kind of fish this is how I simply cook this.

  • 1 pure coconut cream
  • 2 medium onion, finely sliced
  • 2 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 2 medium ginger
  • 3 whole tomato
  • fish sauce (patis) instead of salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 fresh pechay
  • 5-8 tablespoon of vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon MSG

Put cleaned talakitok fish to a pot.
Put 1/2 part of the onion, 1/2 part garlic, ginger, msg, ground black pepper together with the vinegar.
Add half glass of water and cook fish to remove fish taste (lansa ng isda)
