Dried fish has become a staple in my country. People living in coastal areas make and sell this in the market for a living. Filipino's talent in food innovation created a variety of this goods and the industry became bigger and in demand.
Today I'm sharing a sweet variation of dried fish which is less likely to get served because it has higher price than with the original flavor. So I like to do it at home.
- dried fish
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1/4 cup water
- cooking oil
- Dissolve sugar in water.
- Chop chilies and add to the sugar water mixture.
- Pour mixture in the pile of dried fish. Soak it for at least 30 minutes.
- Drain the fish and pour sugar water in a pan. Bring to boil and cook until thick.
- Coat fish one by one in thick syrup.
- Allow this to cool and dry for some time.
- Fry the fish and serve in any meal time.
- Best time for this is during early breakfast, paired with hot coffee and steamed rice.

OMG! This looks wonderfully delightful! I grew up eating freshly- caught fish and this makes my mouth water. But, where do I buy dried fish that looks this good? All I have seen is bonito online- - little fish pieces.
Sometimes we lightly smoke our fish and that is incredible! I just had fish for dinner and now I want more. You are a genius!!! Thank you for this post!

Hi J'Marinde from what country are you? You can find any Filipino store/market if there is available in your country.. They sell filipino goods including dried fish. However, you can try this at home with simple instructions. Here's the link: businessdiary.com.ph/.../
