Peixe com mollo de tomate

Peixe com mollo de tomate
(Fish with tomato sauce)

This dish is an influence from our helper here, who is an Angolan, she made me once a very nice fish with tomatoe sauce. We have the same dish in Philippines called sarciado. The difference is sarciado sauce is with egg. Considering of skipping eggs, I think it would be healthier without egg this time as I’m using eggs for desserts, being conscious of cholesterol. :-)


2 fish fillet
2 onions (sliced in cubes)
1 clove Garlic (finely chopped)
5 large tomatoes (quartered)
2 Tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons tomatoe paste
½ cup water
2 Tablespoons flour
2 Tablespoons corn starch
Oil for frying


Mix flour and cornstarch in a plate. Coat fish with the flour mixture and fry 2 – 3 minutes each side. Set aside

In a casserole, sauté garlic and onion in 2 tablespoons oil until translucent. Add sliced tomatoes and stir occasionally until tomatoes are wilted. Stir in tomato paste and add water gradually. Bring to boil and simmer for 5 minutes or until liquid has reduced. Season with salt and pepper.

Serve fish on top of tomato sauce and plain rice. In Portuguese its called “peixe com mollo de tomate com arroz branco”.
