cuisines of this world-renowned tourist destinations you will not usually find in the tourist brochures. So next time you drop by here on your travels or decided to visit, you can find out for yourself.
So here’s my first entree’ for your wild palates to crave on:
Cooking is easy. The real challenge in preparing this dish is gathering shells from the shoreline. Sure you can buy it from the Puerto Princesa Old City Market but the excitement and experience of combing and finding it in the sand in the early morning is priceless.
Ginataang Sikad-sikad ( shells cooked in coconut milk) is a common local household dish among the communities in the shoreline barangays in Palawan.
To prepare, you need to clean the shells (if you have gathered it yourself, a brush well do), saute’ shells in garlic and onion then put in some water, let it boil for about 15 minutes and pour the coconut milk. Wait to simmer. Serve with rice. Pepper optional.
For cold weather, you can just prepare it without the coconut milk, replace the onions and garlic with lots of ginger and you’ll have a seafood broth with a zest.
So what’s the craziest, wild or exotic foods you’ve tried so far?
