Couple of weeks ago CheeseBoy was down with high fever. After much persuasion, I finally managed to drag him to the clinic. After an awesome home cook meal by yours truly and not so awesome medication, I tugged CheeseBoy to bed and started doing house chores alone.
While waiting for CheeseBoy to wake up I went through my Chef Wan cook book and found this recipe – Anchovies with Soy Sauce. I thought of giving it a shot especially since it’s so easy to prepare (Not very keen to cook a fancy meal after all the tiring house chores).
Cooking oil, 2 Tbsp
Anchovies (Ikan Bilis) – 300gm
Garlic 3, peeled and sliced
Red Chili 1, seeded and sliced
Green Chili 1, seeded and sliced
Onion 1, peeled and sliced
Dark Soy Sauce 4 Tbsp
Kalamansi Lime 1, juice extracted
Sugar 1 tsp
How to Cook?
Heat oil in a wok and fry anchovies until golden brown
Add garlic, chilies, onion, soy sauce and lime juice and stir-fry until well mixed
Finally, add in the sugar and mix well. Serve immediately
The verdict? We love it! Happy trying!
