MCCN Fan Recipe for Gingered Garlic Tuna and Galunggong

This recipe for lemon Gingered Garlic Tuna and Galunggong is donated by on of our facebook fans, Christian Allard. 

I marinate the fish for a long time even the galunngong gazve some flavor so it won’t be just boring galunggong.

For the marinade for the Tuna: I mix in a bowl lemon juice, grated ginger, chopped garlic, chopped green chillies, chopped green onions the green part, little soy sauce, and white pepper then marinated the tuna.   Let it the marinate for 4 hours to absorb the flavors.

For the Galunggong:  I mixed in another bowl 6 -7 calamansi juice, grated ginger, chopped garlic, green onion, and black ppper and let the galunggong marinate for 4 hours.

Dipping Sauce:  It consists of 2 chopped red onions, grated ginger, 4 chopped garlic, 1 chopped green chilli, calamansi or lemon juice, soy sauce, vinegar and black pepper.  Let it chill


Grill the tuna and the galunggong I fried butb the taste is now not boring unlike your usual galunggong.   I just gave extra flavor to wake up the flavors.  I admit I am not that expert yet of fish cooking but I  get better with practice. Our side dish with this is just sauteed garlic with sitaw or string beans.
