Tuna Bicol Express
Bicol Express - Tuna

Earlier today, I craved for something flavorful and spicy; something cooked in coconut milk. So I went to the market, looked for some tuna belly and decided to make Bicol Express - Tuna version. It doesn't look that creamy on the photo, maybe because I used the second extract of coconut milk. It still tasted creamy, though. Next time, I will only use the first extract of coconut milk for a creamier and thicker sauce. Anyway, here's the recipe:


500 grams tuna belly, cut into cubes
150 grams Baguio beans
1 cup coconut milk (1st extract), 1/2 cup (2nd extract)
5 finger chilies
5 cloves of garlic
1 onion, chopped
2 tbsp oil
1 tbsp shrimp paste (salted)


1. Saute onion and garlic.
2. Add tuna cubes. Saute for about 5 minutes.
3. Pour in the coconut milk and let simmer for about 10 minutes.
4. Add in the chilies, Baguio beans and the shrimp paste. Let it simmer for another 5 minutes.

Served with warm rice...yummm!!! ^_^
