As I was about to depart from Chicago O’Hare Airport (ORD) on my way to the Philippines two weeks ago, I had only one thing in mind: to have Crispy Fried Daing for breakfast on my first day in Manila. Yeah, I know that sounds shallow. I guess that I’ve been craving for Crispy Fried Daing for the longest time.
I only stayed in Manila for just a week to complete some errand and visit my relatives. It was hard to plan for my itinerary considering the amount of time that I had, but I did the most out of it.
It has been over a year since I last tried cooking Sinangag na Dilis. As I shop for tuyo a few days ago, I noticed the dried anchovies (pinatuyong dilis) lying on the same rack. I thought that it is about time to make myself some crispy sinangag out of it – so, I grabbed a pack.
Cooking sinangag na dilis is similar to frying other dried fish; however, I always use less cooking oil (sometimes I use cooking oil spray to limit the oil). I always have this with garlic fried rice and some spicy vinegar such as sinamak or pinakurat. Simple isn’t it?
How about you? What do you pair Sinangag na Dilis with?
Danggit (dried rabbit fish), sinangag (garlic fried rice), and itlog (fried egg) make up a meal that is popularly known as Dangsilog. It is quite ordinary for Filipinos to combine the first or last few letters of all the components of a meal to come-up with a single name to associate the meal with. Here are examples of some famous meal combinations: Tapsilog (Tapa, Sinangangag, at Itlog), Tocilog (Tocino, Sinangag, at Itlog), Longsilog (Longanisa, Sinangag, at Itlog), Chicksilog (Chicken, Sinangag, at Itlog), and Pakaplog (Pandesal, Kape, at Itlog).
It has been more than a week since I last posted an article for our What’s Cooking section so I decided to write something about what I had for breakfast this morning. After taking a shower and brushing my teeth twice, I’m now inspired to write something about one of my favorite breakfast foods: Tuyo.
Tuyo refers to salted dried fish (usually herring); this is also known as stockfish in some countries. In the Philippines, tuyo is considered as a poor mans food because of its cheap price – however, this connotation has been expunged over the years since people of different social status learned to love and enjoy it. This can be justified by the different recipes involving tuyo; these ranges from fried tuyo to gourmet pasta with tuyo.
