Tilapia Cooked in Vinegar & Spices

Tilapia Cooked in Vinegar & Spices is also known as Paksiw na Tilapia in my country.  This recipe is very easy to make, and so delicious.  I don’t make tilapia cooked in vinegar & spices all the time since my husband cannot handle the smell of the vinegar.  Most of the time I make this dish when he is not home.  By the time he gets home, it’s all done and ready to eat.

Paksiw is a very popular dish in the Philippines, there is a different variation of paksiw recipe.  My favorite, however, is the fish paksiw, you can use any fish you want for this recipe.  Tilapia fish is one of my favorites to cook other than the salmon.  My husband, he does eat the tilapia but the filet, every now and I then I buy fish with the head included, just because I love it that way.

Tilapia cooked in vinegar and spice is very delicious, I love the combination of the flavors. The ginger has a big part to this dish.  As you all may know already, I love using ginger pretty much on everything.  Not only it makes my dish taste good, but it’s also good for our body.
