Sarciadong Isda is a pretty simple dish to make.
It is basically fried fish in a sauteed tomato, and topped with beaten egg.
Fish is first fried before adding on a sauteed garlic, onion and tomato.
The last ingredient to go in is the beaten egg, and remember:do not stir!
It is important not to stir the egg once poured so it doesn't break down and appear unappetizing.
An option to use is fish fillets instead of bone-in fish slices.
Just dredge the fillet in all-purpose flour, shake off the excess flour and brown for just couple minutes on both sides in a hot pan with little oil.
Try not to overcook as they will either fall apart or get tough and dry.
