Tinu-nuan Sari-Sari Ug Isda (Vegetables and Fish in Coconut Milk)

I miss this one! My mother used to cook vegetables with coconut milk and fried fish. Also with horse raddish leaves (kalamunggay/malunggay). I didn't have the latter so I just used sari-sari or mixed vegetables that contain sliced okra, string beans, red bell pepper, and squash. In Philippines, we can buy sari-sari by pack.


1 1/2 lb mixed vegetables/ sari-sari (sliced okra, string beans, red bell pepper, and squash, u may include Gabi or any root crop vegetable)
a fish fillet
1/2 cup cooking oil
1 medium onion
salt and pepper to taste
1 8-ounce can coconut milk
1/2 cup water
Fry the fish on a heated wok with cooking oil. Cook until done. On a skillet, mix water, coconut milk, mixed vegetables and onion. Let it boil and simmer on medium-high heat until vegetables are tender. Fish may also be grilled instead of frying it.

Add the fish and salt & pepper to taste. Stir and cook for about a minute or till heated through. Serve with hot rice.
