Paksiw na Salmonete

Filipino Style Recipe: Paksiw na salmonete or red mullet is another quick and easy fish dish by Filipinos. Salmonete is a Spanish word for red mullet. Red mullet is a Mediterranean fish with a mix of orange, red and pink colored skin. I used striped red mullet in this recipe and the procedure is similar to other paksiw. Normally the fish and vegetables cook in a blend of vinegar and some spices like garlic, onion and ginger then cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until tender.

Estimated time of preparation and cooking: 20-30 minutes.
Good for 3-4 persons.
