Inun Unan na Pampano sa Iba, Paksiw na Pampano sa Kamias
Inun Unan na Pampano sa Iba, Paksiw na Pampano sa Kamias. It has ages when I last had paksiw na sida. Today I visited the fish shop everybody is talking here in Darwin, one of the oldest seafood shop in Darwin simply called Mr. Barra. I was hoping I could find some fish that are native to the Philippines. There are a few choices mostly frozen except those local seafoods. Bangus and tambakol are available but I opted for the pompano or pampano. I was looking forward for a sinigang na isda or tinowa but it was frozen why not try inun unan or Visayan version of paksiw.
