Fish-Tofu with Tausi

Battered Fish and Fried Tofu with Tausi and Mango

Recipe by :  Ariel Jasa,  Mandaluyong City, Philippines

Fish and Tofu with Tausi and Mango is an explosion of flavor. 

It is savory with a hint of sweetness from the mango and oyster sauce, and the chili flakes or siling labuyo gives it a nice bite to it.

The salty tausi mixes with a little sweetness, and finished off with a thickened sauce with a little kick from the Siling labuyo (thai chili pepper).

I am not really a fan of Tausi or fermented black beans because it is pungent, but a friend convinced me to try it, saying I would hardly smell it when cooked - so I did.

This turned out to be a great dish, that my picky-eater son gave it a two-thumbs-up!
