Kinamatisang Isda (Red Snapper with Tomato)

Kinamatisang Isda (Red Snapper with Tomato)

Fish and vegetable dishes are appropriate for most of us this time of the year. Let me share with you my simple version of kinamatisang isda. This is a simple Filipino fish recipe that has a mild flavor. Fish, such as red snapper, is cooked with tomato and onion. The only seasoning that this dish makes use of is fish sauce.


Aside from red snapper, you can use any kind of fish that you like when cooking kinamatisang isda. However, I recommend medium to large sized fishes. The tomato and onion are very important for this recipe because the dish derives most of its favor from these ingredients. It is recommended that you maximize your cooking time to extract the most flavors from these.
