In my recent post, I featured gourmet tuyo in a pasta recipe. I found the 230 gram bottle available in the supermarket to be expensive for a price of Php 185, so I thought of making my own. Heh. The thrifty in me.
How to make Gourmet Tuyo (Dried Herring Fillet) in corn oil
250 grams tuyo (remove heads, scales, and bones if desired)
1/2 cup corn oil (olive oil is also a good substitute)
1/2 cup vinegar
4 cloves chopped garlic
1 tbsp. chopped red chili peppers
1 sterilized bottle
Fry tuyo in oil for easy removal of scales. When the scales start to come up from the skin, remove from pan and drain excess oil.
