What are you hoping to find in this Filipino Fish Recipes page?

Fish cooked in sweet and savory sauce, or as a comforting soup, or made as dried salty breakfast treat, or crispy fried to perfection, fish dishes are a kind of comfort food.

I have devoted a whole different page just for fish recipes so we can fully explore our traditional, as well as contemporary preparation methods.

Among others, I intend to learn how to make Tinapa using the stove top to smoke my fish, which, I will post here some time.

But before that, we have to learn how to determine if the whole fish we are buying is fresh.

  • The eyes must be bright and clear, no hint of redness.

  • The flesh must be firm to the touch and springs back when pressed lightly.

  • No funky smell or strong fishy smell.

Most reputable supermarkets that sell dressed, packed frozen fish are your safest bet, but they could be expensive.

Frozen fish are usually flash-frozen and kept at the safe temperature during transit.

Now, if you want to start your kids to eat fish or maybe you are just not a fan of picking the bones from a whole fish, just buy the fish fillets.

You just will need to bread or cover the fish with some sort of batter so it doesn't dry out and any sauce that you might put with it would adhere well.
