There’s been a parade of comfort food lately and for us ginataang asan (fish) is one of them. There’s something hearty and comforting about anything cooked in coconut milk. It certainly is not the healthiest of dishes, but is certainly is one of the most flavorful. Imagine getting to the nooks and crannies of the fish head, sipping all the juices, eating the eyes and cheeks and all with a plate of hot rice.
Remember those langka seeds that Atching A detests? Well, my sister experimented with them and put them in this dish. I actually didn’t get to try them here so i don’t know if they helped to improve the dish (as if it needed any more tweaking). By the way, that’s pechay leaves covering the fish head.
It’s a good thing tito, vic and joey don’t read this blog. They would have made hay out of the title 😀
