Chicken Salpicao

This was taken from the Magnolia fillets cuts recipe flyer. I just adjusted for twice the amount of chicken. Delicious and definitely doing it again!

Marinade the chicken in seasoning, worcestershire sauce and hot sauce for about 10 minutes. Saute some sliced garlic in butter then set aside. Drain the chicken, saute some minced garlic in butter, add the chicken. When cooked, add the marinade and mix till cooked. Add the toasted garlic.

Pinaputok na Tilapia

This was the companion of the Inihaw na Liempo. I was really in a grilling mood. To do this, you need to clean the fish, make a few slits on the side, add salt and pepper, then stuff the belly with, onions, tomatoes and coriander. Wrap it in banana leaves and grill till done! Great with soy sauce, pepper, calamansi as dipping sauce.

Inihaw na Liempo

Surprised my wife with this a few nights ago. She was just thinking of buying some. There are so many marinades for Inihaw na Liempo. Some common ones are - soy sauce, oyster sauce, garlic and pepper or soy sauce, ketchup, 7-up or vinegar, garlic and pepper. Different marinades, so many choices. You could also keep it simple and just add salt and pepper and let the natural flavors of the pork do the rest. For this dish, i used worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, garlic and pepper. I cooked the pork in the marinade first for a few minutes before putting it on the grill. If you want this to be spicy, just add your choice of chili peppers or chili sauce to the marinade.

Steamed Asparagus in Butter and Garlic

Very simple delicious dish of steamed asparagus that is quickly fried in butter with garlic.

Wash the asparagus and steam till tender. Season with salt and cracked black pepper.

In a pan, saute some garlic in butter. Add the steamed asparagus and mix for about a minute.

That's it!

Coconut Prawns

At first my wife didn't like the idea of dessicated coconuts and prawns. That changed quickly after the first bite. :)

Steamed Soy Lapu-Lapu

Another dish from my Mom's birthday. We had a seafood party. Rub the fish with salt, let it stay for a while and rinse. Steam the Lapu-Lapu until cooked. For the sauce, just mix oyster sauce, soy sauce, some water, sugar, ginger, a small onion, onion leeks, chives leaves, minced garlic and sesame oil and cook it for a while. Pour over the steamed Lapu-Lapu. Simple and yummy.

Chili Garlic Crab

I did this for my Mom's birthday. This is something she's been craving for a long time.

Cheddar Cheese Soup

Too bad it was too rich for my baby daughter.
