|steamed tilapia with lemon cream sauce|
Here’s our supper last Friday (I posted this late) – Steamed Tilapia w/ lemon cream sauce, chicken rice (recipe below), bitter stewed tilapia innards cooked by Frederick, and an ice cold coke. It is simple dish as it only use a few spices and ingredients, but a tedious one to cook 🙁 but a delicious meal like that? it’s worth every sweat 🙂 specially if Frederick likes it 🙂

2) Rub the internal and external parts of the fish with the rub mix. Stuff with onions and let sit for at least 30 minutes
3) Steam the fish in a pressure cooker by placing water underneath the steam platform of the pressure cooker.

4) Steam for 8 minutes. Start counting the time from the moment the pressure cooker whistles.
Frederick, personally cleaned and gutted the tilapia, and he made this pinapaitan dish out of the innards and gut of the tilapia. He calls it pinapaitan nga bagbagis ti lames. In English, Fish innards in bitter sauce – click Fish Innards in Bitter Sauce for the recipe.
