How to cook Egg Sarciado

Egg Sarciado Recipe is a budget friendly Filipino dish and yet very delicious.  This popular Filipino dish is usually done with fish (Fish Sarciado Recipe), but you can also use chicken, pork, and shrimp as the main ingredient.

Let me give you a little background about this dish, Sarciado literally means “cooked with a thick sauce” in Tagalog, the word is derived from the Tagalog word “sarsa” that refers to a thick sauce which in turn comes from the Spanish word “salsa” which means sauce.

    Wow!! Talk about different or maybe I’m behind it times. I think I would use chicken instead of fish. If I can learn how to pronounce people just may think I’m a good cook. I love how u write out all the details so even I could follow

    We have chickens and get about a dozen eggs a day, so finding egg recipes is really nice. We will try this!
