My mother’s style of preparing kinilaw.  The cucumber is my addition.  The crunch and sweetness of the cucumber adds another texture to the salad.

3 pieces medium sized mackerel, diced & cut into serving pieces
1 continental cucumber, sliced
1 medium Spanish onion
1 tomato
2 sticks spring onions
1 chilli
1 small piece ginger, julienned

Marinade fish in vinegar or lime/lemon juice for at least 10 minutes.
Toss occasionally to coat all pieces.
Prepare the ingredients like tomato, ginger, onions, chilli, and cucumber.
Drain the fish and press lightly to drain off excess vinegar or lime/lemon juice.
Put the ingredients ginger, onions, chilli and tomato together into the fish, mix it well.
Pour vinegar or lemon/lime juice into the mix ingredients.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve immediately or chill in refrigerator before serving.
Add cucumber and sprinkle chopped spring onions before serving.
