I talked about the variety of goods that can be bought as souvenirs when visiting Cebu. There are sweets, tasteful delicacies while there are also salted pungent smelling ones, I am referring to the dried fish. If you want to know more items and good that can be brought as souvenirs, gifts or just "pasalubongs" from Cebu, then read this blog here:
Now, today's blog topic for C-Blogging is all about how the dried fish are made. I know it sounds easy, just drying the fish under the sun and that's it but there's actually a process which requires a lot of steps to ensure that the dried fishes are good not just for the local market but also for international export because the Cebu province is already one of the top suppliers of dried fish.
There are several types of dried fishes as well, some are even salted while others are not, there are also several other kinds of seafood which can be dried and preserved. You'll learn about anything and everything about drying fish and seafood in this blog including the history!
If you are like me, a fan of dried fish, most especially "Danggit" which is a Rabit Fish and of which is the most famous type in the Visayas, then you are in for a treat because I will be dealing with how this type of dried fish is processed and preserved.
Generally, dried fish can be eaten any time of the day in the country but most Filipinos love to pair it with sunny side up, garlic rice and some fresh tomatoes on the side for breakfast. In fact, if you go to some restaurants, they would offer this "Danggit Silog" meal. Its crispy taste together with the saltiness paired with the nicely cooked sunny side up just fills up the breakfast craving in you. Of course, that is only if you are a fan but trying it out doesn't hurt too!
Let's now dive into the Querlo Chat so you'll learn more about how Cebu's best-dried fish are being made from the ocean to the most famous shopping area where locals and even foreigners would go to to buy the lowest prices because believe it or not, these don't cost cheap. They are definitely expensive too!
