Tuna Adobo

I had to figure out what to do with the fresh tuna I still had. I had two 5oz. packs of sashimi and 500 grams of tuna pieces. I was told to stay away from eating raw fish because I’m pregnant, so that’s goodbye to tuna sashimi and kinilaw na tuna – my original plans. I ended up doing my first Tuna Adobo for lunch today.

Tuna Adobo

500-700 grams of fresh tuna
1 head of garlic, minced
2 medium onions, chopped
½ cup light soy sauce
¼ to 1/3 of a 40g sabaw ng sinigang powder mix
Ground pepper
1/3 cup water
Oil for sautéing

1. For the marinade, mix soy sauce, sabaw ng sinigang powder, ¼ of the minced garlic, ½ of the chopped onions and ground pepper. Mix until the sabaw ng sinigang powder is completely dissolved.
2. Marinate the fresh tuna for 2-3 minutes. Remove the tuna, drain and set aside.
3. In a hot skillet, sauté the remaining onions and garlic.
4. Add the tuna, and sauté for 3 minutes.
5. Add the marinade and simmer for 2 minutes.
6. Add water. If sauce is too rich, add more water.
7. Simmer for another minute.
8. Serve with steamed or garlic rice.

If you cut the liquid portions in half, this becomes Tuna Salpicao. My kids love adobo sauce so I made sure the recipe is saucy, almost a stew.

I was in the mood for presentation so I fried some garlic and topped the steamed rice with it for garnish.

I just joined this sweet site. I found loads of useful information here. Please accept my little contribution towards community. I would like to share some [url=]quick weight loss tips[/url]. If you need to know how to lose 10 pounds in a week, you are probably not looking for a standard diet and workout plan. You can lose weight with a common diet and workout plan, Still this demands a lot of time doing intensive cardio workouts and adhering a strict diet. Here I will draft the right steps that I took to lose 10 pounds in just a calendar week.

1. Stay away from all fried nutrients for the week
2. Drink an 8oz glass of Citrus paradisi with breakfast each day. (this speeds up up your metabolism)
3. Take limited portions (stop taking when you are full)
4. If you are eating 3 big a meals a day, eat 5-6 small meals to keep your metabolism up and keep your body burning fat.
5. Aviod eating after 9 P.M.. When you eat that late your body does not burn off the calories.
6. Take proper sleep every night. Not having enough rest causes been proved to be a ranking element to the body storing excess fat.
7. Use a body/colon clean for the 7 days. This will get rid of needless fat stored close to the stomach area as well as cleanse your body of harmfull pollutants that cause you store fat and feel tired. Flush away excess pounds around the stomach area that otherwise would be hard to lose.
8. I suggest you using Acai Berry Diet Pills. This one is proven to work, and you can get a free trial.
9. For those mens/womens who need to burn fat quickly, avoid alcohol.
