2 Pan-Fried Fish in Citrus Sauce Recipe 

If you love citrus juices and have some to spare, you should try this amazingly flavorful recipe using fish fillets, some olives, garlic, and your choice of oranges and lemons. This is a slight upgrade from your typical calamansi fish fillet recipe, but for those who don't have calamansi anymore, this is a fantastic recipe to get a similar citrusy flavor with different fruits. The olives, meanwhile, give this dish a fantastic saltiness that you just can't get in other ingredients.

Sinigang is one of the more popular dishes you can make at home.

6 Five-Spice Tilapia Recipe   

You can definitely just season whole fish with salt and ground pepper but if you have other ingredients, we think you can level up your simple fried fish with an extra ingredient or two. For this recipe, five is the magic number, as in five-spice powder. This combination of spices, usually cinnamon, cloves, fennel, star anise, and the spicy Szechwan peppercorns, is mild but delivers a powerful package of flavor in each pinch you use. So, go sparingly and even just a few pinches are enough to transform your simple fried fish into one that tastes more delicious.

Spicy Ginataang Hipon Recipe 

Hipon or shrimps can be a luxury so we think it's just right that you allow its flavors to be enhanced by the ingredients you add to the dish. Coconut milk and shrimps are a fantastic combination already but if you like your food with a little heat, that addition to the party in your bowl will make you need some unli rice to go with it.

Even if all you have are small amounts of seafood left, you can combine these ingredients to make this appetizing mix of fish, shellfish, and kangkong leaves and stalks in gata. What makes this recipe so great for leftover chunks of ingredients is that you can mix and match the ingredients.


Got sitaw or other green beans leftover from your nilaga? How about some sayote chunks? Chop those up and add those in to heat through. Pick out the meat from clams, crabs, and even shrimp, and chop it up small and stir it in with leftover flakes of flsh. What makes this dish come together is the gata. Everything simmers in it so what you get is a well mixed dish of all the seafood you love.
