Sweet and Sour Swordfish Steak

Sweet and Sour Swordfish Steak
Sweet and Sour Swordfish Steak. I had some slices of malasugi, swordfish steak that have been lying in the ref for some time now. It was not cooked immediately for the reason that I could not decide how to cook the swordfish steaks. I usually like malasugi cook asTinowa a Visayan soup of boiled fish in lemongrass. The truth is I have already made tinowa half of the fish.  I just can’t resist buying the malasugi steaks for tinowa every time I see it at the supermarket.

Ok I decided to cook the SwordfishSteaks Sweetand Sour style.  My Sweet and Sour Swordfish Steak is cooked using just the Pinoy tomato sauce in sachet. It is simple easy and of course quick.
