Laing at Daing, Laing with Dried Fish

Laing at Daing, Laing with Dried Fish. I love my laing cooked with dried fish. Both taro leaves and dried fish are best cooked with coconut milk. With this combination I could consume several serving of rice. Cooking is as simple as my previous post of laing, except for the addition of ginger and onion, I simmered my coconut milk together with the aromatic ingredients and bagoong alamang before adding the taro leaves.

The gabi leaves are simmered at low heat with out disturbing or stirring for the first 20 minutes. To wash off the salt and lessen the saltiness of the dried fish it should be soaked for at least 15 minutes or more.
