Sarciadong Isda, Sarciadong Maya Maya
Sarciadong Isda, Sarciadong Maya Maya. This is an old recipe, sarciado is a way to re-cooked left over fried fish. On this version, I used sliced maya-maya and added beaten eggs to the sauce. Actually, the egg is an option, sarciado is normally with out eggs. The maya maya on this recipe is not a leftover fried fish but it was sitting in the fridge for quite sometime. It is from the fish, which the head I cooked as sinigang a few days back. The secret of a good sarciadong isda is to let the juices of the sauce absorbed and the flavor infused to the fried fish. This is achieved by adding the fish to the simmering sauce during the last few minutes of cooking and letting the dish sit a few minutes in the saucepan after turning the heat off and before serving.


1 kilo sliced maya maya
1/4 head garlic, chopped
1 medium size onion, coarsely chopped
4 large size tomato, coarsely chopped
4 egg, beaten
cooking oil
