(Filipino Coconut Milk and Vinegar Dish)
6 cloves garlic thin sliced
2” knob of ginger peeled and minced
1 large onion julienned
1 tbs olive oil
1 can coconut milk
1/4 cup vinegar
1 long hot chili pepper
1 pound of fresh cod fish
1 tbs fish sauce (optional)
1 tbs brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste
This is one of my favorites. Its so very simple, yet has such a delightful flavor.
I was lucky to have cod that a friend of mine caught himself and gave to me.
Combine all of the ingredients and cook over medium heat until fish is flaky. To check for flakiness, stick a fork in the filet and twist. If the fish flakes apart it is done. Do not overcook or the fish will fall apart. For one inch cod filets this takes about 10 minutes.
Serve with jasmine rice. Garnish with thin sliced Thai chilies and lots of scallions.
