Ginataang Tilapia Recipe


We have been going coco loco over all the fried food we have been eating the past days! We want something different for a change – something maybe milky, maybe coconutty. With that, we looked back at all our previous recipes we have shared with you guys and we realized we haven’t shown you one of our favorites yet – our Ginataang Tilapia Recipe!

Our love for coconut milk based dishes will just never falter, we are telling you! Believe it or not, we just can’t get over it. We love how it is like a warm embrace from a family or friend that we have not seen for long. Milky, creamy, and coconutty dishes like Ginataang Tilapia just has the power to envelope us in a state of comfort and hominess as its flavors could take us back to our younger years with less worries as well as it could blow away all our stressors with just a mouthful of it.

Alongside its distinct and delicious coconutty flavor, we love playing it up with some spice! You know us and you know our palates are all down for a bit of punch and kick from time to time. We just love that extra umph, if you get what we mean. The added spicy tones just makes the whole dish even more of an indulgence as it goes really well with the creaminess of its soup and tastiness of the fish.

Ginataang Tilapia, by the way, is another commonly made dish among Filipino households. This dish is usually of fish cooked in coconut milk alongside some leafy vegetables. For our Ginataang Tilapia, obviously, we used Tilapia as our fish! For our veggies, we grabbed some pechay as well as bell pepper for extra munch! For aroma and flavor, we added some ginger, garlic, onion, and of course, red and green chilis. All this together with some fish sauce and ground black pepper makes our oh-so-yummy Ginataang Tilapia possible!
