At home, we normally have left-over food that I put in the refrigerator for breakfast. Last Sunday, we had left-over fried milkfish and fried round scad (galunggong). When I was about to re-heat them on Monday, they looked dry and hard so I thought of recycling them into another dish, instead of throwing them away.
2 pcs. medium-sized sliced tomatoes
3 pcs. crushed garlic
1 pc. medium-sized sliced onions
1 tablespoon of gourmet fish sauce (I use Barrio Fiesta patis)
2 tablespoons of cooking oil
2 bundles of jute (saluyot)
4 cups of water
- Saute garlic, tomatoe and onion. Do not burn the garlic.
- Put the fried fish and saute for a minute.
- Pour the 4 cups of water and let it boil.
- Put some fish sauce.
- Put the jute leaves.
- Let it simmer for another minute.
Note: You can add other vegetables like squash and eggplant. Others use fish paste (bagoong) instead of fish sauce (patis). Be creative and customize according to your taste!
