Ginataang Tulingan with Kamias

Ginataang Tulingan with Kamias
Ginataang Tulingan with Kamias. Here is another version of ginataang tulingan that I would like to share. The fish was cooked Ginataang Paksiw style but instead of using vinegar this time I used kamias which was in season during my recent trip home to Manila.

Ginataang Tulingan

For the fish I used the small to medium size tulingan, this size is usually used in Sinaing na Tulingan. This one is one of the best ginataang dish that I had. The blend flavours of the coconut and the kamias was just right.

Cooking of course is similar to my other ginataang recipe except to the addition of kamias. Here is the recipe on how I cooked my version of Ginataang Tulingan with Kamias.


1 kilo medium size tulingan, skipjack tuna
1/2 head garlic, crushed
2 thumb size ginger cut into thin slices
2 cups kamias, sliced crosswise
1 medium size onion, quartered
1/2 tsp. peppercorns, cracked
2 cups pure coconut milk
1 small bundle spring onion, cut into 2” length
3-5 pieces long green chili
salt to taste

Cooking procedure:

Remove gills and innards of tulingan, using scissors cut fins and tails. Wash fish thoroughly drain and slice crosswise at about 1 1/2” thick. In a sauce pan put garlic, onion, ginger and the kamias at the bottom. Arrange sliced tulingan side by side, add 1/2 cup of water, 1 1/2 cup of the coconut milk. Add the in the sampalok sinigang mix and peppercorns. Cover let boil and simmer at medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes. Add the remaining coconut milk, season with salt to taste and add the green chili on top. Continue to simmer for another 10 to 15 minutes or most of the liquid has evaporated. Garnish with leeks and cook for another minute. Serve hot with a lot of rice.

  1. Ay ang sarap naman yan! Grabe, I remember my Inay in Laguna...she always cook tulingan...sinaing or may gata...Thanky ou for sharing your recipe, is it okey to use frozen kamias for this dish? That's the only kind of kamias available in my corner of the world=)

  2. Hi Cusinera,
