1 cup of vinegar is too much! Maybe typo but please change it. I had to adjust a lot.
Nice one, simple and yet tasty way of cooking tilapia. My kapampangan mother (God rest her soul)used to prepare this for us but with one more ingredient than above: tausi (black beans).
I think I’ll be a frequent visitor of this blog as I am starting to cook for myself.
I hope I could also ask you things related to cooking every now and then.
