Over the past couple of years, I find I am eating a lot more fish mostly sashimi grade tuna because I love the flavor and talipia, because it is very inexpensive and fresh from the farm. I have tried the frozen whole taliapa from China which was even cheaper than our fresh local product, but it was so nasty and “off Flavor” that I threw the whole meal out. I’ll stick with fresh, local and still inexpensive Talipia and know I eat the best.
I love tomatoes, garlic, peppers, onions, rice and beans and have taken several pictures of the different combinations I cooked with fish and the best way to eat it is the way you like it. I will start with the absolute simplest ways I have prepared the fish in my coffeepot and later publish slight modifications I have documented over the past couple of years. I am sure I have cooked many more different variations and all are more or less favorable but they are all good. When just starting to cook, you should always start with the most basic ingredients and add more to see if you like it better.
Simple Basic Fish Recipe
1 T. Olive Oil
2 cloves garlic minced
1 medium onion rough cut
½ Green Bell Pepper
1 can diced tomatoes
½ Tsp Adobo or other seasoned salt
1 slice 1/8 inch of hot pepper (Optional)
4-6 oz Piece of Fish with or without bones
- Place oil and raw ingredients in Coffeepot, place on warmer and heat for 1 hour.
- Add seasoned salt and tomatoes heat for about 2 hours or other convenient amount of time.
- When pot is hot, add fish and cook for an additional 2 hours.
Extremely flexible cooking times if you have a thermometer. Just heat sauce above 140 and add the fish. Heat the fish between above 160 and serve. I served it with brown rice as shown above. However, since I sometimes want a change, I have also served it with Barley which is also a healthy alternative.
