In my home province, I would always see my grandmother preparing Kinilaw ng Dulong (silverfish). She would just put onion and vinegar and voila.. instant appetizer and ready to eat Kinilaw na Dulong!
Other than Kinilaw, Dulong (silverfish) is also an excellent dish if you cook it as Crispy Fried. I cooked this a couple of weeks ago. I seldom get a chance to see silverfish in the market so when there is, I always make sure to get some for our lunch or dinner.
So here’s my Crispy Fried Dulong recipe:
1/4 kilo silverfish
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Combine all the ingredients, well except of course the cooking oil. Heat the frying pan. Pour in the cooking oil and fry just like how you cook a pancake. If you don’t know how to cook the pancake, then that’s your problem. (No I am just kidding here. Of course you know, right? Google if needed. 🙂 Serve with hot steamy rice.
For the sauce: Mix chopped onion, cucumber, bell pepper, ground pepper, tomato, vinegar, a little salt, ground pepper
