This is an upgrade for the humble tuyo that I, like most Filipinos love to eat for breakfast. It’s usually part of that silog meal  (sinangag +itlog) garlic fried rice and egg.

  • Fry the tuyo in olive oil until almost all of the moisture has evaporated, about 6-8 minutes.
  • Set aside to cool completely.
  • Prepare the tuyo by removing the head first.
  • Descale and remove the spines of the fish.
  • Once you have the fillets, heat about a tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil over low heat with the garlic, bay leaf, and chili.
  • Cook until they become fragrant and the garlic is just slightly browned.
  • Turn off the heat and transfer the fillets in a sterilized jar and pour the extra-virgin olive oil.
  • Consume within one month.
  • Serve with garlic fried rice and egg for breakfast, lunch or dinner :)
