Paksiw na Isda is the healthiest and easiest dish that I know of. This is my go to ulam when I feel like I’ve been too much red meat or oily food the past week. Most of the time, I cook Bangus or Milk Fish or Bisugo or Goatfish but I chanced upon medium talakitok in the market the past week. Naisip ko agad — ang sarap ng Paksiw na Talakitok!
Paksiw is a Filipino dish wherein the fish is poached together with eggplant and bitter melon in seasoned vinegar.
This is the least of my favorite ulam growing up.. and if ever I eat it, I only eat the fish. Goodbye sa eggplant at amapalaya. Ngayon, I live for the vegetables in Paksiw! — ang sarap isawsaw sa patis na may sili!
Kayo mommies, anong favorite nyong i-paksiw? Alam ko na.. Lechon at Pata! LOL!
Hindi yon. Anong favorite nyong isda ang i-paksiw!
