Fried Fish in tausi sauce

Fish in tausi….This dish is a member of the so called “Pangat dishes”(meaning 2nd or 3rd day heating of meal)…I remember when we use to have a “small canteen”(cafeteria) in the philippines. 1st day we sell the fried fish, then if it doesn’t sold..second day we cooked it with tausi sauce or some times “sarciado”….Did you know that Fish is a high-protein, low-fat food that provides a range of health benefits. White-fleshed fish, in particular, is lower in fat than any other source of animal protein, and oily fish are high in Omega 3 fatty acids , or the “good” fats. Since the human body can’t make significant amounts of these essential nutrients, fish are an important part of the diet
