KINILAW NA SALMON (MARINATED SALMON IN VINEGAR)
There is nothing like eating fresh Salmon, it has this smooth melt in the mouth taste that uniquely its own. I like Salmon better than tuna, it is perfect for all kinds of dishes, one can imagine.
This recipe was concocted by a Sister Mason, we got to taste it three Summers ago and the inclusion of the coconut milk made this Kinilaw so tasty, you will want to get your second, third servings. It is that delicious. It has now become a staple in our family gathering. We included veggies in our version as our family has this thing about incorporating roughage in every dish.
One whole Sockeye Salmon cut into cube ( you can use any other varieties of Salmon)
2 1/2 cups white Vinegar
1 can Coconut milk
1 red bell pepper, julienned
1 yellow bell pepper, julienned
