RECIPE: Pancit Pusit by Chef Tatung

This is a classic Caviteno dish shared by Chef Tatung Sarthou during his cooking demonstration at The Maya Kitchen. This dish is also known as Pansit Choco En Su Tinta. The Pansit Pusit is rice noodles with rich squid ink sauce, topped with vegetables, crushed chicharon, squid rings, and kamias slices.


Ingredients:

3 pcs pusit or squid
2 tbsp minced garlic
1 medium onion, sliced
2 pcs chili finger, seeded, thinly sliced
2 pcs laurel leaves
1/2 cup vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 cup water
pepper to taste
400 grams sotanghon, soak in cold water
salt and pepper for seasoning
kinchay, thinly sliced
crushed chicharon
8 pcs of kamias, sliced


Prepare the squid by cleaning and removing the long plastic and the small sack of liquid ink inside. Set aside quid ink for later use. Slice the squid into rounds including the tentacles. Wash thoroughly and drain. Set aside.

Saute garlic, onion, chili finger and the laurel leaves. The fire should be set high then immediately add the squid and continue to saute for two minutes.

Put the vinegar, soy sauce, fish sauce and the squid ink. Let it boil. Add 1 cup of water. Let it boil for two minutes.

In a medium fire, add the sotanghon. Mix thoroughly until the noodles absorb the soup or stock. Add salt and pepper to taste. Then add the kinchay.

Garnish it with crushed chicharon. Toasted garlic can also be added if you want it to be more flavorful. Serves 3-4 pax

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!

Boracay's Hidden Gem: Mama's Fish House

I've always wanted to dine at Mama's Fish House in Boracay but wasn't able to for some forgotten reasons already. Then the pandemic happened and we're in lockdown or limited travel movement for almost two years. And guess what? One of the nicest thing to happen on our recent trip to Boracay was to discover that Mama's Fish House was located just outside the beach front of our hotel- Microtel by Wyndham Boracay . Talk about serendipity!
