Fish soup with leafy vegetables
Tinolang Isda is the way of cooking fish soup in the Philippines. The name varies depends on what region you're in, Cebuano's or Visayan called it Tinowang Isda or Sinabaw na Isda.
Cooking is so simple, fish is boiled with ginger, tomataoes, onion and seasoned it with salt and pepper. My version of Tinola is just little different from traditional one, Since, I'm using frozen fish. Although is it not as good compared to fresh fish still good enough to satisfy my craving for some Tinola. I used red snapper on this dish but you can totally used whatever fish you like.
