Along with my craving for salty food I also miss some fresh salad’s from back home. Growing up in Davao we were spoiled with good quality seafood. You should see my Aunt’s house it’s garden path was once covered with oyster shells, oh yes we had a bountiful of grilled fish, seashells and seaweeds every weekend that we enjoy by the beach.
One of the seaweed that I enjoy eating and truly miss is called Lato. My sister sent me a photo of what they had for lunch paired with some grilled liempo.
I can just taste the sea with each pop of the seaweed’s tiny bulb. If only I can find some here in Dubai.
-a bunch of Lato (about 250 to 300 grams)
-3 small onions
Carefully clean the lato with water. Cut tomatoes and onion in wedges. Arrange it on the plate.
For the dressing our familly enjoy it with a tablespoon of vinegar and a teaspoon of soy sauce. Or just eat it that way.
