Crispy fried fish tastes good, but crispy fried fish adobo will take your taste buds to the next level. This was what learned when I tried to fry fish that was already cooked inadobo. There is this infused flavor in the fish that made it more tasty and appealing to the palate. It was even better when I dipped the fried fish adobo in spicy vinegar.
Fish gets really exciting to eat when fried. I remember having the best fish sinigang when I used fried fish to make sinigang na tilapia sa miso. The soup was very flavorful and it had this distinct good taste that lingers in your mouth for a while. Fried fish adobo is the opposite though because frying happened last, but both are great dishes that will be part of my regular menu forever.
Fried Fish Adobo Cooking Tips
There are few pointers that I need you to follow for best results: make sure to let the liquid (adobo sauce) drip completly before frying the fish. This will avoid the oil to splatter; it is also good to fry the fish in medium heat (instead of high) so that the inner part of the fish gradually becomes crispy, before the outer part turns golden brown. Once the outside is golden brown, your frying time will be limited as the fish is about to be burnt soon.
Try having this dish with Fried Filipino Garlic Rice along with some spicy vinegar as a dipping sauce and you will see why I enjoy having it.
