During a moment of clarity and insanity, I decided to do both two month-long daily challenges: NaBloPoMo for blogging and Sketchbook Magic Sketch-A-Day for art. I’ve often been one to “just do”, so here goes.
I’m sharing with you today one of my favourite ways to use dried fish in fried rice. Whether it be a sweet, salty and/or spicy salmon candy or jerky, smoked fish or the pungent Filipino “tuyo“, I add chopped garlic to round up the flavour.
There’s not much to it and one doesn’t really need a recipe. Grab your choice of dried fish (although dried meat would work, too) and some garlic.
Saute in olive oil for a couple of minutes until the garlic pieces begins to turn brown.
Stir in steamed rice and cook for another few minutes. I tend to let it cook for five minutes or so to toast the grains a little bit. Sprinkle some salt and serve with egg. That’s it. I find comfort in a simple bowl of this, it reminds me of breakfasts at home on weekend mornings.
