Fried Pompano With Tamarind Sauce + Salted Egg & Tomato

Fried Pompano With Tamarind Sauce

We love Pompano fish. It may be a bit pricey but when I see a fresh catch at the wet market, I can’t resist buying even half a kilo. There are times when I cook it the moment I get home but most of the time I just clean it and put it in a container to stock in the freezer. Kasi sometimes, there’s a craving for fish, diba?

Now that we are on ECQ, I put fish for stock in the freezer especially because I don’t want to cook meat and canned goods everyday for the family.

Fried Pompano With Tamarind Sauce

So on this lazy day when I still want to eat healthy, I just fried the pompano fish I had on hand. Then I served it with Tamarind sauce, sliced indian mango, and Salted Egg & Tomato salad.

That tamarind sauce is a thai-inspired sauce that is so good with any fried fish! Recipe is below, easiest thing to do. Just mix and boil.

TGIF! San sa bahay kayo tatambay ngayong weekend? LELz!
