Sinaing na Isda(slow cooked fish in soy sauce)

This dish is one of laguna and batangas specialty recipe(a province in the Philippines)…My wife is from laguna, Usually they use “tulingan”, a kind of fish similar to tuna but a smaller one…Cooking style is similar to our famous ADOBO, slowly cooked for 2 hours or more until its soft that you can eat even the fish bones. To compliment the fish, it was cook with a pork fat to give extra flavor for the dish….Did you know that fish is a high-protein and a good source of omega-3-fatty acids.this omega 3 help maintain cardiovascular health by playing a role in the regulation of blood clotting and vessel constriction….

Ingredients: (good for 3-4 persons)

  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 200 gms of pork fat(skin on)
  • 1 kl of fish(I use baby jack mackerel)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp white sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 5 pcs dried chillies(optional)


  • in a medium wide sauce pan(if you have palayok or clay pot would be better) just bring all ingredient together with the pork fat on the bottom followed by fish on top.
  • Cook for 2 hours using low heat or until sauce is thickened and fish is so tender…
  • Enjoy!!!!
