Laing is a popular Bicolano dish that's been adopted by some restaurants in their menus. It is made with dried yam leaves (gabi), and cooked in coconut milk. Some laing variations include dried shrimps (hibe), or sardines.

       patis
12   pieces tiger prawns, deveined
       siling labuyo
       parsley, chopped


Procedure:

Saute ginger, garlic and onion in pork fat.
Add coconut milk and cook until it boils.
Add yam leaves and continue cooking until half of the sauce turns to oil.
