Lusog Notes

This classic Ginataang Tilapia dish is high in calcium which helps in the formation and maintenance of strong bones and teeth. It is also high in vitamin C that helps in the efficient absorption of iron in the body.

Chef's Tip

To keep the pechay from unraveling, secure the pechay with a piece of pandan that is tied around the fish. The pandan not only acts as a string to keep the pechay in place but also gives a mild flavor to the coconut sauce.
