Tilapia with Tausi

We live near the lake, so we have an abundant supply of fresh tilapia.
My daughter likes it cooked -deep fried with a heaping of catsup on the side. Me? I like it deep fried too, but with black bean sauce.
Tausi or tawsi  are fermented black beans and are available in cans or pouches here in the Philippines. Tausi is already salty so you have to be careful in adding too much on your dish.

What you need:
1 kg of fresh tilapia
oil, for deep frying
2 tbsp salted black beans, sauce included
1 big onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 bell pepper, sliced
1/2 thumbsized ginger, grated
3/4 cup water
1 tbsp sugar
ground black pepper, to taste
1 tbsp oil

  • Wash and clean fish. Cut into 2( if desired). Drain well. Rub with some salt.
  • Deep fry fish in heated oil. Then set aside fish when done frying.
  • While frying the fish, heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan.
  • Saute onions, garlic,add ginger, then  the salted black beans. Add water. Cook for about 2 minutes.
  • Add the bell peppers, sugar and ground black pepper. Adjust the taste, add salt if needed.Simmer for another 2 minutes.
  • Pour the sauce on top of fish. Serve with rice!

This is a great idea, to be honest the only dish I had with tausi yet is the Pork Ampalaya with Tausi.

One of my favorite fish dish. I'm more of a fried fish eater but if it's cooked with tausi, I always eat it. Love it! Tagal ko na yatang hindi nakain nito. Years na siguro.

Visiting via Food Friday.
