    Lusog Notes
    Fish are a good source of protein that help repair body tissues. This dish also contains vitamin A which is important for normal vision and healthy skin.
    Chef`s Tip
    Ginger helps remove the fishy smell of fish and adds a fresh and spicy note. To infuse flavor into the fish, slice the ginger thinly so that there is more surface exposed in the water while it boils.
