Kulinarya: Empanada ( with Cheesy Tuna Filling)

How time flies..it feels like I just posted the leche flan for Kulinarya for February and now March’s almost over which means another delicious Filipino food in spotlight.  This month’s theme is empanada.. I have never made empanada ever and did noteven attempted it for some reasons: first, it’s easier to buy it from a bakeshop whenever […]

Tilapia Fillet with Ginger Balsamic Glaze

This is one of the easy dishes that I love to make.. it involves pan-frying..my favorite way of cooking fish or anything before I really learned how to cook. 🙂 This particular dish is also inspired by one of my favorite chef, Wolfgang Puck ( I miss his show..he makes me smile/laugh..love his accent). He […]

Chinese Steamed Fish Fillet with Crunchy Fried Garlic and Chilli Flakes

I remember watching an episode of a show hosted by Rachel Ray (before she became really famous where she goes into a celebrity home and watch them cook their specialty dishes or their favorite meals); she went to Kelly Hu’s house and Kelly cooked some of her favorite chinese dishes and one of those was […]

Fish Curry with Vegetables

I’ve seen this recipe from a magazine, the photo looks so appetizing that made me want to try it. It’s different from the curry that I usually make; for one, this curry recipe has spinach. It also uses turmeric instead of curry powder, plus it has lime which I figure was because of the fish […]

Fish Sarciado (Fish with Sauteed Fresh Tomatoes)

Saengseon Jeon (Korean Pan Fried Fish Fillet)

This is officially my first try at it. SaengSeon in Korean means fish and Jeon refers to any lightly seasoned meat […]

Easy Sole Meuniere with Spaghetti Aglio e Olio

I learned a new french word today: Meunière. It means (in the manner of the miller’s wife) dredged in flour before pan-frying in butter usually with lemon juice and chopped parsley sprinkled on top. Usually done with fish, the butter it was sautéed in, is poured onto it and served with a wedge of lemon. […]

Pinaksiw na Tilapia

This is an everyday Filipino dish. It is very easy and simple, using only ingredients commonly found in the pantry (especially Asian’s). Traditionally, paksiw* is made with bangus (milkfish), but since I don’t like milkfish because it has so many tiny bones (although it is very tasty), I decided to settle for tilapia (my fave) […]
