How to cook Adobong Tanigue with Gata

Adobo is probably the most famous Filipino dish of all. When you hear about adobo, the first thing that will come to mind is the usual chicken adobo and pork adobo or the chicken-pork adobo which is the two ingredients is cooked at the same time. However, this popular authentic Filipino dish has evolved into many variations, and in this recipe we are preparing the Adobong Tanigue sa Gata, this is an alternative and a much healthier version of adobo that we all know, since we are using tanigue or spanish mackerel fish as the main ingredient.

This flavorful dish is cooked with coconut milk or “gata” which makes the sauce creamy and enticingly delicious.
