    merpius's Note:

    This is my wife's favorite recipe. It may be made with virtually any medium whole fish (such as Lapu Lapu or Bangus/Milkfish) or medium fish fillet (such as Salmon or Steelhead), but it is pictured made with salmon fillet, so I've indicated that in the recipe below. She learned it by watching her mom make it while she was growing up, so the measurements are all approximate. Tasting is very important while cooking it so you can maintain a balanced flavor.

      Use a large frying pan and put enough oil to cover the bottom with about 1/4 inch.

      Pan fry the fish in the oil on medium heat. If you are using a fillet start with the flesh side down. You may need to score the skin of a whole fish in order to allow it to cook through.

      Stir the water, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, salt and pepper/pepper corns together in a mixing bowl.
