Matambaka is a common fish in the Philippines and always available at the market throughout the year. When it is very fresh it is so tasty and I like to cook it as paksiw. Paksiw is a Filipino cooking method that uses vinegar. It is simple and easy to do.
1/2 kilo matambaka
3/4 cup vinegar
4 cloves garlic ( crushed)
thumb size ginger( strips)
salt and pepper to taste
1. In a pot put all the ingredients and let it boil then simmer until cooked.
2. If the taste of the vinegar is so strong, you can add a little water.
3. Simmer for few minutes until done.
4. Serve it with rice
