How to Cook Basic “Paksiw na Tilapia”

Here’s a basic recipe for cooking mouth watering “Paksiw na Tilapia”.

This recipe is for 6 medium-sized Tilapia.

  • Clean 6 medium-sized Tilapia.
  • Sprinkle salt on the fish. Rub the salt on both sides of the fish and put them in wok.
  • Add 1 cup of water.
  • Add crushed 10 cloves of garlic.
  • Add 1/4 tablespoon peppercorn.
  • Add a medium-sized chopped onion.
  • Add ½ tablespoon brown sugar.

  • Bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Add 2 tbsp soy sauce.

  • Add 2 tbsp vinegar.

  • Let simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Tilt the wok occasionally and use a ladle to spread sauce on the fish.

  • Simmer until all Tilapia are fully cooked.

Here's a bit of Tilapia Trivia. Did you know that:
  1. When the fish’s white eyeball pops out, it means the head is cooked.
  2. If the fish’s tail flicks upwards, it means the fish is very fresh.
