Pindang Kecap Tuna (Tuna cook in sweet soy sauce)

Always want to call back my childhood memory. My mother used to cook me this pindang kecap using milkfish. But this time i used tuna and the result is not bad, even better than i thought. Because milkfish has lots of bone, i’m pretty sure my husband wouldn’t want to eat it so i decided to use tuna or other fish that easier to eat.

The taste should be sweet and a little bit sour. My kids are really love this recipe. So let’s check out the recipe below.
