    one of my fondest memory as a kid is my mom’s escabecheng lapulapu. reading your entry reminds me of the taste and happiness…

    speaking for your daughters, i’m sure sa mga putaheng niluluto mo para sa kanila they would have loads of memories to cherish and recount sa susunod na henerasyon nila.

    Indeed, ginger improves a lot of dishes. A pity that it’s so expensive nowadays.

    btw, your fish in pinapple (with mustard) sauce continues to be a hit with my family and friends. Thanks!

    One of my most favorite dish. It reminds me of my dad, who after cooking this meal (which I really loved), ask me if I want to learn how to cook it (I was then 1st year highschool), I should saved my daily allowance to buy all the ingredients we need. You see to him even though this is just fish, it is one of the dish that is out of daily budget food. With all those ingredients, mahal daw ito lutuin.

    When I visited Philippines last year, and I wanted this dish, I cheated, I use the bottled atchara that I bought in a local market in Lemery Batangas. I just added lots of ginger, and the fish are huge maya-maya. Sarap, everybody loves it.

    Hi Miss Connie!

    You continue to inspire me everyday! Thank you! This dish seemed so intimidating before but I never knew I could make it and it’s so good! I am starting to have some confidence in cooking now. Salamat sa iyo talaga!

    Hi, Miss Connie.

    Greetings from Taipei, Taiwan! I’ve always been a BIG fan of pinoycook. Just a question about the Sweet n Sour sauce- is pineapple juice okay to use in place of vinegar and sugar? Thanks a lot!
