Kinilaw (Marinated Raw Fish)

Kinilaw is to the FIlipinos as Sashimi is to the Japanese. Fish is cooked in its own marinade, being vinegar the main ingredient and not through heat or fire.

1 med-size white fish

3/4 cup vinegar

1/2 tsp each salt and pepper

1 green bell pepper or hot chili pepper whichever you prefer(finely chopped)

1 tsp. ginger root chopped

1 med size onion sliced

Serves 4-6

Clean fish and slice into thin strips.
Soak in vinegar and salt.

Change soaking solution twice or until fish whitens and looks cooked.

Serve with black pepper, ginger, onion and bell pepper/chili pepper.
