🇵🇭ALUGBATI OKRA AT TUNA FILLET 👩🏼‍🍳iCook

Vine spinach or Alugbati to us Filipinos. As I’m always mentioning I love green leafy vegetables, and this is one among them. Alugbati can be added to any other vegetables like here I got okra and chili. The tuna fillet is from the can and instead of fresh tomato, I added tomato paste. It Turned out good as you could see the sauce is so inviting. Hubby says alone the sauce is enough as viand. Simple cooking but satisfying.

“Eating as Medicine“ Malabar spinach is an edible vine that has a thick, crunchy texture and lemon-peppery flavor. Vine spinach or Alugbati to us Filipinos. As I’m always mentioning I love green leafy vegetables, and this is one among them. Alugbati can be added to any other vegetables here I got okra and Tuna fillet from a can. Added tomato paste instead of fresh tomato, seasoned with fish sauce. Quick easy meal prepping. Of course, eating with rice because we are Filipino.

🇵🇭🇱🇻SQUID IN HOMEMADE BBQ SAUCE TASTE OF LETTLAND 👩🏼‍🍳iCook

👩‍🍳How do you eat BBQ Squid?

Pan-fried squid over the stove, using olive oil turning until browned on both sides. Then add BBQ sauce which I bought from the farmers’ market a homemade sauce that tasted Lettland. Season with salt and pepper if needed to adjust the taste. Garnish with scallions, and serve with fried rice for dinner for two. To achieve a tender texture, you have to remember that it does not take squid to cook very long. Anything in between will make the squid rubbery. Another fusion of Filipino and Lettland.

YOU NEED…….

some Olive Oil or any Vegetable Oil

1kg Squid, small ones

about 3tbsps. of homemade BBQ sauce

some Scallions

🌍🌏SHRIMPS AND MUSSELS IN WINE👩🏻‍🍳iCook

👩‍🍳Cooking 1 kg mussels for 2 people, nothing more is left determined. We enjoyed it, hubby and I. I love the sweet taste of the soup. Nobody can resist this recipe for mussels in white wine. Use fresh produce from the fish market. Mussels are mollusks and fall under the seafood category in the kitchen. But mussels have nothing to do with fruits – the sea creatures are much more small animals that feed on plankton. The small creature has been used as food but also as a supplier of jewelry (pearls) for many hundreds of years.

YOU NEED…….

1kg Mussels

500g Shrimps

2 cups of White wine, I used wine for cooking Risotto and also good for seafood, a local one.

some Olive Oil or any Vegetable Oil

some Butter

5 cloves Garlic

3 pieces of small Carrots

1 stem of Lemon Grass

1 Green Chili, spicy (optional)

1 Red Onion

2 pieces of Scallions

Parsley a handful, chopped (I used a frozen one)

Tablespoon dried Oregano or more if you like

Salt and Pepper

Chili-Paprika Powder, spicy (optional)

🌏SQUID IN OYSTER SAUCE WITH PEARL ONION AND YOUNG CORN 👩🏼‍🍳iCook

👩‍🍳Inspired by my daughter. She remembered the one I cooked in 2012 with pork belly. But I don’t have pork belly at home so I cooked it with young corn, pearl onion, and green chilies seasoned with oyster sauce. But if my son is at home I don’t add oyster sauce because he’s allergic to it. It turned out good the fusion of sweet pearl onion and young corn is so good with the squid. It’s a bit spicy as per request by my daughter. She loves it spicy. Maybe you can try and tell me your thoughts about this. Another recipe creation directly from my humble kitchen.

🇵🇭HAPUNAN-DINNER-ABENDESSEN WITH MY HOME PREP MEAL

HOW TO…….

👩‍🍳The best time for dinner is between 5pm and 7pm. This gives the stomach and intestines enough time to digest the food they eat before the metabolism switches to sleep mode at night. The stress of the day is over, and the work is done. But in our case, if you are working from 11:30 before noontime until 10pm then you travel on the way home we need almost 30 minutes. Arrive at home almost half an hour before 11 pm then I have to cook for dinner. But luckily tonight I was already at around 6 pm so I have enough time to prepare our meal. So for tonight’s meal every Filipino, sinigang with Sea Bream and Shrimps, and fried squid. For dessert, I made a fruit cocktail with sour cream and grapes. Hubby is happy and of course my tummy too. I love the vegetables that it goes with this viand. happy prepping everyone.

1 Sea Bream

2oog Shrimp

a bunch of Spinach
