Daing na Isda (Daing na Galunggong)

Daing na Isda is a Fried Fish where fish is split open, gutted, marinated and sun dried before frying. This delicious Daing Isda is a favorite breakfast meal for Filipinos. 

Daing na Isda is very easy to make and you can use other fish like bangus, hasa hasa, galunggong, bisugo and many more. Be sure to have a sharp knife to split the fish open like a butterfly and rinsed well before patting dry before marinating. Daing na Isda uses a vinegar-salt-pepper marinade to cure and ferment the fish. 

With this Daing na Isda I used galunggong fish and it turned out really good. The sun was out yesterday here in Texas so I took advantage of it. I marinated the butterflied galunggong fish for an hour and sun dried for an hour. I sun dried it for an hour as I don't want it too dry. It was so good paired with scrambled egg and garlic fried rice.
