Fish Sarciado Recipe

Fish Sarciado is a simple fish recipe. This recipe is known in Ilonggo as Cardillong Isda. It is delicious and easy to cook, it is basically fried fish with sauteed garlic, onion, tomato and topped with beaten egg. 

With this Fish Sarciado I used Hasa-Hasa fish. This recipe is also great when you have left over fish and don't know what to do with it. It is also good using bangus, tilapia and other fish. 

Give it a try and let me know. Leave me a comment or a suggestion, I would love to hear from you.
