Ingenious recipe using Unipak Mackerel + GIVEAWAY + winners

It has been a tradition for most of the Catholics to observe fasting on Lenten season. Fasting or abstinence starts from Ash Wednesday and lasts until Good Friday as observed. Catholics do it by not eating too much or eating meatless meals.

This Holy Week, you need not deprive yourself of something delicious. With Unipak, you can have a meatless meal that is still palatable, healthy and pocket-friendly.

Let me share with you one of my favorite dishes during Lent, using the Unipak Mackerel I called "Miswa Pak-tola."

Here's what you'll need:

1 whole Patola
1 can 425 grams Unipak Mackerel in Natural Oil
100 grams miswa
2 tbsp cooking oil
1 pc tomato
black pepper
salt or fish sauce
Malunggay leaves (optional)
boiled egg (garnish)

1. Wash and peel patola. Cut into desired thickness, set aside.
2. Slice garlic, onion, tomato and ginger as desired.
3. Heat oil in a pan. Saute garlic, onion, tomato, and ginger for about 2 to 5 minutes, then add fish sauce.
4. Add the sliced patola, black pepper and Unipak Mackerel, stir. Simmer for 10 minutes.
5. Add the miswa, stir. Add water if the sauce is too thick. Simmer for another 5 minutes.
6. Finally, add the Malunggay leaves. Turn off heat keeping the pan covered until malunggay leaves are cooked.

Why Unipak?

Mackerel fish is low in contaminants because they feed low on the food chain, which means they are low in mercury and other environmental contaminants like polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) and dioxins. As an oily fish, mackerel is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids which is essential in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Not all Mackerel brands are the same, hindi basta nakasanayan, the best na yan. Unipak Mackerel is made of high-quality fish so you can be sure it is healthy and beneficial to your health, kaya basta Mackerel, dapat tatak Unipak!
