Coconut milk is used in various Filipino dishes. We oftentimes cook ginataan in meat, chicken and fish. One fish that I think best cooked in coconut milk is tanigue. I tried this recipe using powdered coconut milk and dissolved in water for convenience. I add some chilli powder to have some heat. The recipe might not be that special but I hope this can be satisfying for difference in the usual everyday meal.


2 slices of tanigue
1 cup of coconut milk
1 small onion sliced
1 thumb ginger strips
3 cloves of garlic pounded
slices of green bell pepper
1 small lemon
1 medium piece of potatoes quartered
cooking oil for frying



  1. Season the tanique slices with ground pepper and salt, and sprinkle with lemon juice.
  2. Fry the tanigue slices until golden brown.
  3. Sautee ginger, garilic and onion in a casserole.
  4. Add the coconut milk and let simmer.
  5. Add the potatoes and allow to cook. Add water as necessary.
  6. Add the fried tanigue and let simmer until cook.
  7. Season to taste.
