Fried Galunggong and Radish Salad

The heavy rain prevented me from going to the big market today, so I just bought what I need from the nearby flea market.  I purchased more than a kilo of galunggong (round scad) and radish, tomatoes and onion for the salad.

Galunggong is so versatile you can do a lot with it.  But today I simply fry the fish and pair it with radish salad (hubby’s fave salad actually). This is just a mixture of radish, onions, tomatoes, and condiments like vinegar, salt and pepper, and a small amount of sugar.

This is what we have for lunch and dinner today.  Sarap!

Do you love galunggong too? What other recipe for galunggong do you know? I would love to hear from you. 🙂

Chicken lollipop

I bought more than one-kilo of chicken wings the other day to grant my kids’ wish to prepare chicken lollilop for them. I followed the simple steps I wrote in my quick menu plan. The steps are easy you can prepare this in no time at all.

I marinade the chicken with lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper and let it stand for a few minutes before dipping in flour.

I wasn’t able to find Parmesan cheese so I strike out the cheese and egg in the ingredients list. I fry the lollipops on medium heat until golden brown.

Kids’ verdict: thumbs up 🙂

Since my kids’ love the way I prepare this easy chicken recipe, I’m thinking of cooking the same for their Christmas party or give some to the teachers. But if the budget won’t allow my plan, I guess a photo frame gift for her will do for teachers and exchange gift for classmates.

Quick menu plan


Sauté left-over ham in butter together with green and red bell pepper and then add-in egg to make an omelette. Season to taste. Best paired with toasted bread soaked in butter.
