Lusog Notes

This Fish Menudo recipe is high in vitamin A that helps protect one from infections and promotes growth and development. Vitamin A also helps keep healthy skin and normal vision.

Chef's Tip

Thinly coat the fish with flour to keep it from sticking to the pan as you fry and also to give it a thin crispy crust which will keep it from getting soggy in the sauce later on.
