Sarciadong Daing or Sarciadong Buwad is a quick and easy recipe involving daing (salted dried fish). Fried daing is quickly cooked with a tomato-based sauce. It can be consumed as a main dish with steamed white rice.
There are many types of daing; you have several options to choose from in terms of fish variety. I used daing na hasa-hasa for this recipe. I am not really a fan of this fish, but it is the best looking one in the batch, from the Filipino store. If given the option, I would probably choose daing na labahita (surgeon fish).
The hasa-hasa was not bad at all; In fact, it went well with the sauce and the entire dish was a success.
