Anchovy (dilis) fritters and seaweed (lato) salad


What could be practical than preparing a nutritious meal on a budget. I prepared this delicious meal not long ago and only had the chance to post it now.


I think I have posted cooking about anchovy fritters or tortang dilis twice already (here and here) and this is the third time. Hindi halatang paborito namin hihi. Seaweed salad or lato salad is also a favorite of mine and hubby’s but I have yet to post about it as a side dish.

Here’s the simple recipe of tortang dilis:

You need anchovies, eggs, flour, water, chopped malunggay leaves, chopped onion, shredded kalabasa, salt and pepper.


  • Wash the anchovy well and let it drain.
  • Combine anchovies, beaten eggs, flour, a little amount of water, chopped malunggay leaves and shredded kalabasa.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Mixed well
  • You have to fry the patties over medium heat until golden brown.

As for lato salad. You have to soak and rinse the seaweed well before preparing it as salad mixture. Add chopped onion, chopped tomato, calamansi juice, and salt and pepper to taste.


To add flavor to your tortang dilis, you can prepare soy sauce, vinegar, small chili pepper, and chopped onion

Tortang dilis and lato plus your favorite condiments are best served with steamed brown or white rice.


The Many Benefits of Eating Seafood

The sea is known to house a lot of sea creatures that people would love to eat but people sometimes try to avoid eating seafood because they are not sure about the things that they can get from it. Nowadays, people are more concerned about their health and the fact that they do not know what they are placing inside their bodies scares them.


According to studies, seafood is good for the body because aside from being rich in nutrients, they also give a good source of protein. Aside from this they give different vitamins and minerals that will allow people to become healthier than ever.

Here are some of the benefits that can be received from eating seafood:

  • Improves heart health – Having an unhealthy heart can lead to a wide variety of health conditions. Including seafood in people’s diet will allow them to reduce the risk of heart diseases.
  • Helps ease arthritis symptoms – For people who normally have joint problems, the intake of seafood as part of their diet can help improve joint health. Say goodbye with stiff joints in the morning just by adding seafood to their meals.
  • Enhances good skin – This may be surprising for a lot of people but taking in more seafood can help reduce the amount of toxins that are inside the body that may cause skin issues. Without toxins and the increase in antioxidants brought about by eating seafood, the skin can be improved.

Of course, it is important to only choose fresh seafood delivery because eating stale seafood will expose people to risks that could have been avoided.
