Chicken Relleno is one of the food I grew up with especially when we have family gatherings or simply when my mother or aunt wanted to feed the family a special dinner. Alas, its also one of the dishes that I haven't tried cooking and of course, my mother didn't leave her recipe behind.

But thanks to Romulo's Cafe and The Maya Kitchen for sharing this Chicken Relleno recipe.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!
