asuhos (fish) fajitas with zucchini

As mentioned in my previous post on Sunday Shutter Delights, asuhos became one of my favorite fish nowadays. But it's not easy to buy this fish as the sales staff in Landmark mentioned that asuhos is one of their fast moving products and most often that not, the fish is gone by afternoon or early evening, which is my grocery time. Good thing I found asuhos fillet in the shelf one time so I bought a pack of it. I was supposed to prepare chicken fajitas for my baon lunch the next day but decided to use asuhos instead. Below is the recipe.


150 grams asuhos fillet
1 small zucchini, sliced
1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
1 green bell pepper, cut into strips
1 white onion, sliced
1 lemon, juice extracted
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon oregano powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder 
4 tablespoons olive oil
salt, pepper and chili powder to taste

How to make asuhos (fish) fajitas with zucchini

  1. Place 2 tablespoons of olive oil, lemon juice extract, cumin powder, oregano powder, garlic powder, onion powder and other seasonings in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  2. Toss asuhos fillet into the mixture (make sure asuhos will be covered) and then refrigerate overnight or at least for 2 hours.
  3. In a pan, pour the remaining olive oil and sauté onion, bell peppers and zucchini until tender. Set aside.
  4. In the same pan, fry asuhos until golden. Then add the marinade and vegetable mixture and toss again.
That's it, asuhos (fish) fajitas with zucchini is ready for serving. Serve with warm rice and your choice of dipping sauce. Enjoy!

Fajitas is a Mexican dish where the meat and veggies are usually grilled and then served in a tortilla bread for snack. This fish fajitas is not like the traditional one but I love it. I love how the seasoning mixture makes the fish so tasty and delicious. The flavor is also enhanced by the veggies especially the sweet taste of the onions. And instead of tortillas, I served it with brown rice. Pinoy tayo eh, kelangan may rice haha!
