Description

Fish head recipes are indigenous to Southeast Asian cuisine as there are many variations across the region. In the Philippines, the dish is called "Sinigang sa Miso" (Stewed Fish Head and Salmon Bellies in Miso and Tamarind). Asians use all edible parts of the big fish so whenever available, people may add fish liver, fish roe, fish stomachs etc that came with the fish to the stew. The collagen you will get from the dish is worth like big dabs of deep penetrating moisturizers/wrinkle prevention cream. It is a low carb, no-guilt food and you also get genuine fish oil and a dose of omega 3 ... enjoy!

    Directions

    1. Heat cooking oil and saute garlic (do not burn the garlic or it will taste bitter)
    2. Add onions. When wilted, add tomatoes and wait for it to wilt a little bit. Toss in the daikon then the miso, cook for about a minute. Toss to make sure the mixture doesn't stick to the bottom of the wok/pan.
    3. Add the fish and/or bellies. Toss around to coat the fish with the miso mix.
