Ty this savory recipe of steamed fish with black bean sauce or Tausi. | www.foxyfolksy.comIt is like a long forgotten memory that has resurfaced as I knock my brains out thinking of what to make of the Cream Dory fillets sitting on the bottom shelf of our freezer. Then a picture suddenly flashed in front of my eyes and I remembered it from a food magazine that a friend gave me 5 years ago as a going-away present when I was just about to leave the Philippines to join Armin in Germany. Being newlywed and all and trying to please my husband, her thoughtful gift helped me a lot! Thanks Roms and I want you to know I still have the magazines you gave me!

Ty this savory recipe of steamed fish with black bean sauce or Tausi. | www.foxyfolksy.comThis recipe of steamed fish with black bean sauce or Tausi, as we call it in the Philippines, is actually inspired from Yummy, a popular Filipino food magazine. They featured it on their August 2011 Easy Asian Edition. I like their take of adding gin to the sauce so I copied that but I changed the procedures and some ingredients a bit. I used dried fermented black beans (Tausi). You have to remember to wash them before using, however, you can also use the canned ones.

My mama used to cook something similar when we were younger. Sans the gin and she usually use milkfish, and instead of steamed she usually fried them. So if you do not have a steamer, frying the fish also works for this recipe.
