    an additional ingredient for kinilaw in our place is crushed chicharon sprinkled on top of the kinilaw just before serving

    try this for best results:

    no tomato, no garlic;

    wash the cube fish with maasim na tuba vinegar then outrightly throw out the liquid vinegar; do not marinate, as this will cook the fish in the vinegar. a freshly flavored fish cubes would taste better.

    the vinegar for final mixture should not be too “maasim”, mix with water too lower acidity. a tuba vinegar would be best.

    add all the other ingrdients: finely chopped ginger, medium sliced red bell pepper, onions, salt, a pinch of calamansi, a pinch of sugar (in lieu of msg). add coco cream, (which would be better if mashed together with the vinegar earlier mentioned). mix

    yes, indeed , would taste better if served cold.
