Fish menudo is an aromatic tomato based dish that you will love. It is a seafood spinoff based on a pork recipe. Add some chili for some spice. You may also season it with fish sauce for more flavor.
250g fish fillet, cut into cubes
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 potato, peeled and cut into cubes
1 carrot, peeled and cut into cubes
1 1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup green peas (canned or frozen)
1 medium sized red bell pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
Salt and ground pepper to taste
Oil for frying
Marinate the fish in lemon juice, salt and pepper for 15 minutes.
Heat some oil in a medium sized frying pan over medium heat. Fry the fish fillet for 10 minutes on each side or until it is golden brown. Transfer it to a plate lined with paper towels to drain the excess oil.
Place the water, potato and carrots in a medium sized saucepan over high heat. Bring it to a boil and let it simmer for 5 minutes or until tender.
Add the tomato sauce, green peas and bell pepper to the vegetables. Season it with salt and pepper. Let it simmer for another 5 minutes. Add the fried fish and let it cook for another 5 minutes or until heated through. Serve immediately with rice.
