When thinking of a healthy, comforting lunch dish — Ginataang Tuna (Tuna in Coconut Milk) always come to mind. It’s because anything with coconut milk yields rich, creamy comforting dishes, and tuna –well, it’s healthy and delicious. Today, we happen to find Yellow Fin Tuna at the market, at dahil favorite ni DaddyDoodleDoo ang fish na to — Alam na, Ginataang Yellow Fin Tuna ang tanghalian!
It’s very easy to cook. All you have to do is season the tuna slices with salt and pepper and fry it until it’s half-cooked. Then sauté the garlic, onion, and ginger and add the coconut milk and cream when fragrant. Simmer this for about 5 minutes before adding the fried tuna slices and patis. Add the finger chillies and simmer again. When it’s already simmering, pour in the vinegar and let it simmer until the acid evaporates. Lastly, add the pechay and continue to simmer until it’s wilted.
At dahil nakakita rin ako ng fresh talaba — syempre nasira ang budget at napadagdag ito sa tanghalian..heehee. I also added steamed Okra for additional veggie serving and nutrition.
