Let’s Go Greek!

I was sitting at home and thinking that it has been a while since I last tried out a new recipe.  So, I booted up my netbook and started searching for something new when it dawned on me.  I never tried cooking a Greek dish before.

And, since my father wanted fish, I looked up fish fillet dishes and found:

Greek-style Marinated Mahi-mahi

But, I don’t have mahi-mahi so I used milkfish instead. Besides, it is one of the few fish that my father can eat for now.

Aside from using a different fish, I followed the recipe to the letter.  And it turned out amazing.

Even my father admitted it tasted good. 🙂

Oh and we finally bought a grill pan!

Fish Soup on a Rainy Day

Hot and spicy soup is always yummy on a cold, rainy day.

So, on this cold, rainy day, I cooked Thai Curry Fish Soup.  Found the recipe at http://www.grouprecipes.com

Followed the recipe almost to the letter except I don’t have lime and kaffer lime leaf. So, I used lemon and bay leaf instead.

Oh, and I used whole fish cut in half instead of fish fillet. 🙂

Tasted like authentic Thai food to me. I wanted more heat but, again, my father can no longer tolerate too much heat in food. As it turned out, he was not even able to sip the soup eventhough I fished out the chilis early on. 🙂

Filipino!

No matter how many cuisines I try, nothing compares to Filipino cuisine. Well, at least for me because I am Filipino.

So, decided to try a dish that I haven’t had the chance to cook before.

Sweet and Sour Tilapia

Of course you can use other fish. You can even use fish fillet if you want. I just happen to have tilapia in our freezer.

I would consider this one a success since it tasted the way it should. Although, my fish was not fried to perfection.

One of my many weaknesses is that I have a hard time frying whole fish. 😦

I keep forgetting to say this, in case any of you want to try the dishes that I have been posting here, just let me know. I’m more than happy to share the recipes with you. 🙂
