The fiancé arrived yesterday and brought a ton of goodies back with him. Mostly not for me though. :p But along with a few trinkets that he picked up during his trip, he did bring a few food items that he managed to squirrel away.
First up, madeleines!
He also brought home some cheese..
While running errands, we stopped by the weekend market at Eastwood Mall and picked up this white chocolate chip cookie (Php 120). I’ve been craving chocolate chip cookies the whole time we were being barraged by the rains. This hit the spot perfectly!
And lastly, a food experiment. (Really, I was just sick of eggs and tuna for breakfast. :p) I really want to get better at cooking (and at my current cooking level, there’s really nowhere to go but up. haha, can’t get any worse. :p)
Without further ado, I present my tuna in oyster sauce dish.
I wasn’t really following any recipe.. mostly a hodgepodge of ingredients and spices that I had on hand.
What you’ll need:
1 can Century Tuna Hot and Spicy (better if you use tuna in water – so that no competing flavors are present)
1/4 small onion, finely diced
1/4 garlic, finely diced
oyster sauce (use sparingly, at your discretion)
canola oil (but other types of oil should work too)
ginger powder, cumin powder, white pepper
1. Sauté the garlic and onion in oil. Be careful not to burn the garlic (there’s a fine line between the browned and burnt garlic.. browned tastes awesome, burnt not so much.)
2. Add the tuna (minus its oil or water) and the oyster sauce. The oyster sauce should be used sparingly. Better if you add it a few at a time.
3. Add the spices. The oyster sauce should provide enough sodium for the dish (the one I used was actually low sodium but had enough (of it) to complete the dish.)
Surprisingly, it was very good. It would’ve been great with rice but I made do with 1 pack of Skyflakes. Yum!
