Tomato Water is a really interesting preparation because it is a way to present a very familiar and well-known flavor, tomato, with a completely different presentation.
With the appearance of a translucent liquid, it adds a lot of flavor to dishes, in addition to the look and aesthetics.
It goes well with raw fish and seafood, and can be used for drinks or replace any preparation with water.
