This month’s Kulinarya theme “Sisig”
is hosted by Jenn of Storm In My Kitchen and Iska of ISKAndals.com.
Sisig is one famous Filipino appetizer which is enjoyed with either an ice cold beer or coke. After a days work my friends and I would share a plate of sizzling sisig and laugh out our daily stress in life.
I can’t remember the last time I made sisig, but whenever I do I always use pork ears & liempo. For this month’s challenge I’m making a healthier version using fish – bangus (milkfish). I prepared 2 kinds of sisig (pork ears & fish) for dinner but the boys preferred the fish version.
You need to cut your bangus butterfly style, season with salt and pepper and fry it to crisp. Remove bones from fish and shred/mince/chop meat. Once that’s complete let’s get on to making Sisig.
1 large Bangus, fried and minced
1 medium Onion, minced
2 tbsp Soy Sauce
4 cloves Garlic, minced
1/3 cup each of Red & Green Bell Pepper (Capiscum), diced
1 tbsp Lemon juice
1/3 cup Mayonnaise
1 tbsp Oil
1 birds eye chili (optional)
Salt & Pepper
Saute garlic and onion till translucent.
Add bell pepper, fish, chilli, and lemon juice.
Turn off heat and add mayonnaise and mix.
Taste and season with salt & pepper according to you taste.
