Dried Fish for Cultural Connections

It’s time of the week again to show off your culture foods here at our Krazy Kitchen. So, what are you waiting for? Hook up now!

These are dried fish, a very common breakfast or anytime dish for Filipinos and it comes in different species of fish. Some are sliced open, cleansed from blood and lay them out for drying after dipping them in a bowl of salt and sprinkle with more salt as you dry them in the open air and sun until all moisture are off them. We cover them with a net to keep the flies at bay. With this process of preservation, the fish can stand even if not placed in the refrigerator. How to cook? oh, we just fry them with hot oil in a pan and dipping them with vinegar is the best, eat with steam rice, eggs and it’d be heaven for us.
