Ginataang Tambakol – Skipjack Tuna In Coconut Cream Recipe

Ginataang Tambakol - Skipjack Tuna In Coconut Cream Recipe



INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 medium size tambakol (8-10 slices, including the head), about less 1kg
  • 1 medium size ginger, sliced
  • 2 shallots or onions, sliced
  • 2 crushed garlic
  • 1 siling panigang (finger chili) whole
  • 2 cups of coconut cream (first extraction)
  • 1/2 cup of coconut milk (second extraction)
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 5 pcs mustasa (mustard leaves), optional
  • salt and pepper to taste

INSTRUCTION:

  1. Wash the tambakol thoroughly in running water. Remove the innards like the intestines and gills. Season the fish with salt.
  2. Layer the tambakol in a casserole. Put in the vinegar, ginger, shallots or onions, garlic, siling panigang (finger chili) and coconut milk. Cook on medium to high heat, covered.
  3. Bring to a boil, about 10 minutes. Pour the coconut cream, simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Season with salt and pepper. Lay the mustard leaves and cook for 5-7 minutes.
  5. Serve, share, and enjoy.

QUICK NOTES:

  • If you want a spicier version, you may add siling labuyo (bird’s eye chili) after putting the coconut cream.
  • If you want a more intense flavor, you may fry the fish first before cooking it with coconut milk. You may also simmer it further to get an oilier sauce.
  • NO STIRRING PLEASE. You may tilt the casserole back and forth to combine the ingredients. Reason for not stirring is the fish meat may break up when you stir.
  • You may also replace the mustard leaves with malunggay, kangkong (water spinach), sitaw (string beans), sigarilyas (winged beans), or talong (eggplant). If you’re not into vegetable, you may omit it.
  • You may also replace the vinegar with 3/4 to 1 cup sliced kamias.
