In the Philippines, we have a recipe called Pinaputok na Tilapia.
First of all, removed the gills and other entrails of tilapia. Stuffed with a generous amount of unions, ginger and tomatoes – to the point of bursting and wrap it with banana leaves. That’s where the word ‘pinaputok’ or burst derived from.
There are many ways to cook Pinaputok na Tilapia – grilling or frying. It’s your choice. Kain na tayo (Let’s eat)!
