In a previous episode, I went on a seafood buying binge at the Tagbilaran morning fish market, picking up soft-shelled crabs, sea grapes, swordfish, tuna, and some veggies. After a day of waterfall hopping, I’m back at home to cook up a feast with my host. And best of all, I spent less than $10 Canadian ($7.50 USD) for the entire feast.
Here are the ingredients/recipes:
Ensaladang lato (sea grape salad) – chopped tomatoes, garlic, onions, and Filipino vinegar
Ensaladang guso (seaweed salad) – same recipe as above, but the seaweed needs to be boiled first
Crab with Tangy Coconut Tomato sauce – coconut milk, tomato paste, Filipino crabs
Spicy Swordfish soup – kamunggay (horseradishe tree) leaves, napa cabbage, chopped tomatoes, chopped chillies, onions
Grilled Tuna – tuna, salt
