Fish Lugaw with Malungay, a Pinoy version of Fish Risotto with Malungay

Image
Fish Lugaw with Malungay, a Pinoy version of Fish Risotto with Malungay. Today I got some malungay leaves at the Rapid Creek Sunday Market. I was thinking of having a fish soup with malungay lunch, but as I was looking for ingredients I saw this risotto rice that have been sitting in the cupboard for some time now. I end up cooking a fish lugaw using risotto rice.


The resultant lugaw dish went great using risotto rice for my Fish Lugaw with Malungay but an equal parts of ordinary rice and glutinous rice should work fine, if risotto rice is not available. I have used the rice ratio on my other lugaw dish, click list below to see the recipe.

Mushroom Sotanghon Noodle Soup

Image
Mushroom Sotanghon Noodle Soup. Sotanghon noodle soup is one of the more popular Pinoy noodle soup dish perhaps next to the Pinoy maminoodle soup. Today I am sharing an overload version with lots of oyster and shimeji mushrooms. For the meat ingredients I used pork and chicken tenderloins, yes there is also a chicken tenderloin, it is the middle core of the chicken breast. Sotanghon soup must have some shrimp or prawns ingredient so I did not forget to add some.


Cooking is obviously very quick and simple because of the use of tender ingredients.

Braised Pork and Tofu with Black Fungus

Image
Braised Pork and Tofu with Black Fungus. I had a pack of fresh black fungi in my ref. which was sitting for some time. It did take a few days before I could think of what to cook out of it. We Pinoy are more familiar with the dried ones called “Tenga’n Daga” which literally means rat ear. Black fungus or would it be fungi are usually used in cooking pansit, the more popular one is Cebu’s Bam-i.


On today’s dish, Braised Pork and Tofu with Black Fungus, I simply braised the whole black fungi together with pork and fried tofu with some soy sauce, oyster sauce and Hoisin sauce with some star anise to pump up the aroma. This is done by simmering at low heat for about an hour and a half.


Here is the recipe of my Braised Pork and Tofu with Black Fungus.

250 grams pork belly cut into large cubes
1 big block, firm tofu, cut into rectangles, fried and cut into cubes

Ginataang Ampalaya

Image
Ginataang Ampalaya. To Bicolanos most likely vegetables are cooked with coconut, even the bitter guard or ampalaya. Today I would like to share how I cooked my Ginataang Ampalaya, one of my favorite Bicolano vegetable dish cooked with coconut milk. For the “sahog” instead usual healthier tinapa, I used pork and some prawns or shrimp. I also added some sautéed salted shrimp krill or “bagoong alamang” to make it pungent to compensate the coconut oily taste and spiciness from the hot chilies. The ampalaya shall be cut in thin slices and should be slightly overcooked to overcome the raw taste of ampalaya.


If you are a fan of ampalaya then Ginataang Amplaya is strongly recommended to try, you will surely enjoy love it.


Here is the recipe of my Ginattang Ampalaya.

Ingredients:

2-3 large size ampalaya, trimmed, deseeded, cut into thin slices.
2 cups pork, boiled, cut into thin strips
2 cups small to medium size shrimp, shelled
1-2 tbsp. sautéed salted shrimp krill, bagoong alamang

Patola at Sardinas with Misua

Image
Patola at Sardinas with Misua. I did not expect that patola is also available in Australia. I bought some at the last Rapid Creek Sunday Market. Now I wanted to cook the patola with canned sardines then add some misua noodles.


The combination of canned sardines and misua is a regular fare to most Pinoy, it is cheap very filling and yummy. It has been some time the last time I had one, now it’s time to satisfy that craving.


Here is the recipe on my Patola at Sardinas with Misua.

Adobong Sili

Image
Adobong Sili. I grew up in Vigan, and Adobong Sili is a regular fare in our kitchen. The green long chili in Ilocos is not as hot compare to other places that the reason it can be cooked as is and is not just an ingredient for dishes that needs hotness. Adobong sili is some kind of side dish but most often it becomes the main vegetable dish to most Ilocanos.


There are several ways to cook adobong sili, it really depends every households and available ingredients but to call it adobo it should be cooked with vinegar and some crushed garlic and season with salt at the least.


But for my version I cooked it similar to my vegetable adobo, the only difference is I have to cook it longer until it is wilted.

Here is the recipe of my Adobong Sili.

Ingredients:

1 big bunch on mild green long chili
1 cup pork cut into strips
1/2 head garlic, peeled, crushed
1 small size onion, peeled, chopped
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 tsp. peppercorns, crushed
2-3 pcs. bay leaf
cooking oil
