  • 1 pounds Mackerel/Tuna steak cut
  • ¾ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice or kalamansi juice
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 onion - cut into rings
  • 3 tablespoons oil


  • Combine soy sauce, lemon or kalamansi juice, and pepper together. Pour over the fish and marinate for at least an hour.
  • In a skillet, heat oil in medium high. Once the oil is hot enough, fry fish until golden brown. Place the cooked fish on your serving plate.
  • In the same pan, stir-fry onion rings browning the edges a bit but not too much that it will become limp. Place onion rings on top or a round of the fish steak.
  • Still, in the same pan, add the remaining marinade and let simmer for just a minute. Pour on top of the fish steak. Serve.
