Sarciadong Isda Recipe

Sarciadong isda or fish sarciado recipe means “Fish with sauce” is another simple and easy to prepare healthy Filipino dish. Fried fish is simmered in a sauce that is usually composed of tomatoes, onions and eggs; some seasonings are also added like cheese to enhance the flavor.
