Tinolang Tahong

I love seafood! And I love it more when it was prepared/cooked without using cooking oil, just like this tinolang tahong (mussels in ginger soup). Anyway, here's the recipe of my tinolang tahong:


1 kilo tahong (mussels)
3 cups of rice water
5 medium-sized tomatoes, cut into quarters
3 finger chilis
1 bunch chili tops
3 thumb-size ginger, crushed
salt to taste

How to make tinolang tahong

  1. Put the water, tomatoes and ginger in a pot. 
  2. Add salt according to your taste, then bring it to a boil.
  3. Once boiling, add the mussels and chili and let it simmer for about 5-10 minutes or until the mussels opened up. Do not overcook the mussels.
  4. When the mussels opened up, add the chili tops, cover the pot and remove the fire.

That's it, it's done! A simple and easy to prepare weekend dish. Best serve with calamansi/soy sauce/chili dip together with fried fish and warm rice. Enjoy! ^_^

Servings: good for 4-6
Cost: Around 150 Php
