Fish Dumplings

Bidbid is best suited for dumplings. Remove scales and entrails. Wash clean and slit crosswise across the tail. Press down from head to tail slit with dull side of knife. Use quick, single strokes.

Mash the fish with 2 raw eggs, salt, pepper, a bit of flour (for binding) and very finely chopped kinchay. Form into small balls.

Steam as you would put or drop into rapidly boiling water. It is done when it rises to the top of the water.

Fish Fillets with SSS

Have the fishwife skin and debone a large labahita. The flesh of the fish should weigh more or less, one kilo. Refrigerate this for 2 hours to assure easy, uniform cutting of fillets.

Roll the fillets over a mixture of 50/50 flour and cornstarch highly seasoned with salt, vetsin and ground black pepper.

Deep fry. Drain. Serve with sweet-sour sauce.
