Winners of the 'I Love Fish video contest' Awarded by FISHTA Seafoods
Cooking is indeed a passion of many Filipinos which is also reflected in our culture. In a archepelago surrounded by rich waters filled with marine life, gives us a lot of reasons to come up with exciting fish dishes. FISHTA Seafoods, a division of Santeh Feeds and also a provider of fresh seafood to leading supermarkets in the Metro sees this riches of our seas and our passion for cooking and that is why they launched the "I LOVE FISH VIDEO CONTEST", an online competition for food lovers who wants to showcase their cooking prowess and creativity. The contest is not limited to just one variety of fish which give liberty for the participants to use different kinds of fishes to come up with their unique dish.
The mechanics were posted at http://ilovefish.ph/ Each of the videos are uploaded to the I love fish Youtube channel for everyone to see and also for those who wants to try the dishes for themselves. There were a lot of amazing videos on how fish dishes were prepared, though I would like to know how each dish would taste like. Some are surprisingly easy to prepare yet look really good and delicious on plate. And since fish is a natural source of more protein and omega-3 which is good for the heart, it would make think to always have more dishes which would benefit my health in the long run.
And after extensive deliberation of all the videos, the winners are announced and awarded last May 24, 2011 together with FISHTA management and Ms. Janette Toral who organized the said contest. Also present were the other video participants who will also take home prizes courtesy of FISHTA Seafoods, every goes home a winner.
