Kinilaw na Tanguigue Recipe
Kinilaw is one of my favorite dish, when ever fresh tanguige or any other white meat fish is available in the market kinilaw would be part of the dinner table or as pulutan for the social drinking in the evening.

Kinilaw na Tanguigue Dish

I like my kinilaw really fresh, this way you could taste the texture and flavor of the fish meat Not the type that is overcooked with vinegar that has become to sour. Some also prepare kinilaw with coconut milk or mayonnaise to remove the fishy taste. I know some also parboil the fish.

Of course the best are those prepared right after the catch , with the basic simple ingredients. This are prepared by just washing the fish meat with vinegar then drain, put in chopped onions, ginger siling labuyo seasoned with salt and with kalamansi.
