The fish I am referring to is known scientifically by the name of Pachymetopon Grande or commonly known as Bronze Bream. Bronze Bream has got some close relative, known as Pachymetopon Aeneum or commonly known as Blue Hottentot or Copper Bream. This species looks very similar to the Bronze Bream excepting it is much more elongated.
I just want to introduce to you this kind of fish which is salable here in Europe. I did tried already for so many times to cook it with our very own “Talbos ng Kamote” (Camote Tops) and taste good! We always says; “parang nasa pilipinas ang lasa, malinamnam!” 🙂
With tomatoes and only salt to taste. I tell you “manamis-namis ang sabaw!”
* about 1 kg Red and Bronze Bream, cleaned
* 5 pcs. Green Tomatoes
* about a bunch of Camote Tops
* 1 Onion
* 2 cups of water
* Salt to taste
—Simply bring the 2 cups of water to a boil, once it boils add tomatoes and onion, cover for onother boiling point.
—Add fish and salt to taste. Simmer for about 5 minutes then add camote tops continue cooking until camote tops is done.
—Serve with patis and hot rice! So simple isn’t it?…..and you have a very healhty fish soup!
