My Fave Mackerel Misua Recipe + Giveaway!

 The rainy days are here again. Aside from cozying up all day watching re-runs of my favorite tv shows, I enjoy a bowl (or two) of my favorite rainy day comfort food, misua with patola. So, today, I’m sharing with you this simple yet healthy dish using Uni-PaK Mackerel in natural oil.


 Unipak Mackarel
1 can 425g Uni-Pak Mackerel in Natural Oil
100g misua
2tbsp cooking oil
Sliced luffa (patola)
1tbsp garlic, minced
1 onion, minced
1 cup water
2 tomatoes
Salt  and pepper to taste
1. Saute onion and garlic in oil. Add tomatoes then mackerel.
2. Pour the mackerel broth and water. Bring to a boil.
3. Add misua noodles and patola then cook for several minutes.
4. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Why Mackerel?
Here’s another thing that’s comforting, mackerel is an oily fish that is low in contaminants but is rich in nutrients. Mackerel fish is low in contaminants because they feed low on the food chain, which means they are low in mercury and other environmental contaminants such as polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs) and dioxins. However, they contain a lot of fatty acids have been found to be beneficial in reducing bad cholesterol,enhancing cognitive functions and reducing inflammation.Amazingly, mackerel also contains Coenzyme Q10 which has anticancer properties.
Why Uni-PaK?
