Fish diet

Almost two weeks to go before Christmas and here I am with a slightly elevated cholesterol level.  BMI is still within the normal range (thanks to my mother's good genes!) but I have been slowly switching to a fish diet.  I had fried tanigue (mackerel) for dinner...tanigue is a tasty fish but truth be told, I wanted to drown it in tartar sauce.  Fortunately, there was pako (fiddlehead fern) salad to appease my taste buds.

My brother cooked maya-maya (red snapper) for lunch the next day, and threw in camote tops, sigarilyas (winged bean), and red bell pepper for good measure.  I have started to like sigarilyas.:p

Looks like I'll be stocking on canned tuna and frozen cream dory in case I get too lazy to go the market.

So you're preparing for the high fat and calorie-ridden Christmas food. I love tanigue with tartar sauce.

I wouldn't mind eating fish every day. I just love fish!

I will also be switching to a much healthier diet. My problem is high sugar naman :(

Anyway, pako salad is really good. I like it, too!

Fried tanigue with tartar sauce, what a tempting thought! You know I love fish, but the only fish I get to buy from the supermarket nearest us is bangus, tilapia and cream dory. Well, I love bangus, and I can survive eating only this with rice even for a week, but of course, I want to have a variety of fish, too, like that tanigue and maya-maya.
