WHAT IS A DAING?

Initially, I though that “daing” is only applicable to bangus. The term “daing” is an umbrella term for a variety of fishes which are dried and salted. Some of the most famous fishes which are made into daing are, bangus, bisugo, herring, sapsap and many more. Most of us thought that they are processed this way to make them flavorful and crunchy when cooked, but there is an amazing science behind that.

Salting and drying are two of the oldest way of food preservation. The concept of drying is removing all the liquids in the fish so that there is no way bacteria can grow on it, meaning, there’s a less chance of them getting spoiled easily. The salting method almost bear the same concept, where the salt pulls the liquid out of the fish. In turn, it makes the fish salty.

Usually, I cut some tomato and cucumber slices with my silog breakfasts or have it with my special vinegar dip.

HOW TO MAKE SARCIADONG DAING

Making some sarciadong daing is very easy. If you have tried other sarciado recipes in the past, then the following steps will be familiar to you.

Start by washing the daing. They are dried and salted to have a longer shelf life, so we can expect for them to be really salty. After this step, simply fry them until crispy.

The defining part of this dish is the sauce. Our sauce will be composed of the basic aromatic base, plus a bunch of tomatoes and seasonings. Remember to use red and plump tomatoes rather than the green ones since they are sweeter and softer, and much easier to crush into a sauce. Season the sauce according to your liking. It is not recommended to add salt since the bisugo is already salty.

The last part of this dish is combining the daing na bisugo ang the sauce. Simply add the fried bisugo to the pan and let it simmer in the sauce. You can actually skip this part if you prefer the sauce and fish to be separate.

I really love having this sour and salty sarciado dish over with some fried egg and fried rice in the morning. Yum! You can also try this sarciado recipe with other dried fish.
