JERK TUNA WITH Vegetables was todays lunch at home. I got this fresh Tuna fish from Turkey Shop near Naschmarkt. I cooked it just like dinengdeng with fried tuna 🙂
With all my favorite vegetables; Saluyot (Jute Leaves), Okra, Sitaw (String Beans), Talong (Eggplant), and Kalabasa (Squash).
Seasoned with Bagoong Balayan Sauce and Magic Sarap from the philippines 😛
My daughter learned to eat this dish from both of us (hubby and I). But our son not that much he used to eat only the fried fish and the sauce over his rice. The Philippine food itself is certainly not unhealthy. Fruits and vegetables , fish and meat is bought fresh every morning. The one who eats as consistently, his body certainly does not hurt. Nutritionally, the classic sausage, cheese, steak, roast pork, goulash, etc. are more than questionable .
The fast food chains are becoming increasingly popular among the population.
For me the fresh food in the markets is far cheaper than the fast food stuff. Filipino food is not only delicious but healthy as well, there are also more the classic sinigang, adobo and pancit. Which can not compete with other Asian countries like Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, in diversity.
And not to forget our very own sensationally delicious mangoes. For that alone, the Philippines is always worth the trip besides the lovely people at home. My fellow countrymen!
