One of the fish dishes that is often served in our dining table is this – sarciadong isda. It is simple yet delicious and kids love it. You might have noticed that almost all fish and chicken and even pork dishes we’ve been cooking are kid friendly. Yes of course because it is really difficult to feed toddlers. When Mammy cooks dinengdeng or Ilocano vegetable dishes, she has to cook something for the kids like adobo or fried fish.
Sarciadong Isda often is served with dinengdeng that is either cooked vegetarian style or with pork. The kids like this dish because of its sauce savory. And they also like the taste of fried fish.
The fishes we usually use for this dish are either galunggong, bangus (milk fish), and imelda. But you can use any white fish including tuna as you wish.

Eggs, beaten – 3 to 4 pcs
