Tuyosilog (dried fish, egg and fried rice)

tuyo(dried fish)………….It’s a common breakfast dish for Filipinos.  It is best accompanied by a saute’d tomatoes, onions and eggs and off course the fried rice. While the dried fish is best dipped into a vinegar sauce with chillies. Believe me, after eating a lot of good food this holiday seasons, you will miss to eat this simple kind of meal. This is the last member of the “SILOG” family. to have a recap, I already posted chiksilog (chicken), Tocilog (pork) and more. I just bought the fish that I used here, because the last time I am trying to make a dried fish, the birds ate it all. It is usually cured by putting a lot of salt and let it dry under the sun for about 2-3 days. ……………..Did you know that dried fish is a completely natural product that retains the antioxidant and omega-3 benefits of fresh fish, while constituting a healthy and widely available food for both people and dogs. Fish helps to mitigate the occurrence of heart attacks and keeps the body’s circulation functioning well. Dried fish also provides an excellent source of protein with fewer calories than other foods such as beef. Most dried fish contains little salt or cholesterol while being high in essential vitamins and minerals. It also is low in saturated fat, which is known to aggravate or cause heart and blood-pressure problems……..

Fried Rice with Chicken Schnitzel

fried rice………..There are hundred ways to enjoy your fried rice. You can cook it with bacon, shrimp or sometimes you can cook it with your left over meals. This one, I cook it with our leftover omelette. I will tell you the little story, I have a Chef trainee. The order from the docket is an omellette with salmon and brie cheese. But he made a bacon and vegetable one. It was truly out of no where order. So instead of wasting the food, I decided to mix it with my rice and grab some chicken schnitzel. And It serves as my big big lunch for the day…How about you guys? What do you do with your leftover meals?……………..Did you know that 50 percent of fat found in bacon is monounsaturated fat? That is the good fat that can help you lower bad cholesterol. Bacon’s monounsaturated fat is “oleic acid”. The same “healthy” fat find in an olive oil.  Hard to believe it, but its true. One of the knockdown against bacon is its nitrate compounds that used to preserve the meat. However, this compound causing cancer are only found in overcooked bacon. But don’t worry, by drinking  juices with lots of vitamin C and E inhibit the conversions of nitrate in our stomachs. Can you resist a fried bacon on your breakfast?……….

Pork and Sausage Jambalaya

Jambalaya……….Traditionally, jambalaya is made in tree parts, first is meat, second is its vegetables and third is the rice and the stock. It is very similar to paella as it is also composed of meat stocks such as chicken, beef or seafood, or even pork if you prefer. This dish is very common in buffet eat all you can, because you can be half full by eating this alone. But not all kinds of rice grains can be cooked this way, I suggest you to have a basmati or just a long grain rice will do. I normally use long grain rice, which produces a fluffier rice. If you are following a recipe that calls for long grain rice, and need to use medium or short grain rice instead, remember that rice grains have different absorption rates and adjust the amount of water accordingly. (In this case you would reduce the amount of water by 1/4 to 1/2 cup per cup of rice)………….Did you know that rice provides fast energy and is also readily digested. It is good for bowel health, is an important source of vitamin B1 and encourages stable blood sugar levels. We Filipinos, usually always have a rice on our diet…………..

Ingredients: serves 4-6 persons

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cups long grain rice
  • 3 cups chicken stocks
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 medium chopped onions
  • 2 pcs sausages sliced
  • 200 grams pork meat cut in small cubes
  • 1/2 cup red and green bell pepper
  • 1 cup mixed vegetables(corn,carrots and peas)
  • 1 pc fresh tomatoes quartered
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery


  • In a pan, heat oil and saute pork until brown, allowing the flavour to come out. then saute garlic and onion on the same pan. add in sausages and the rest of the ingredients. this will serve as our jambalaya mixture.
  • To make it easier, in a rice cooker, pour in chicken stocks and rice and stir in jambalaya mixture. stir well and cook the normal way as you cook your steamed rice..
