A very wonderful Hamburger Food Combining recipe I’ve tried out a few days ago, for the kids. The ground is very soft, but is immediately compact when placed in the pan. The best that goes with a ladle. The patties are super juicy, have all tasted the same and are moved into the standard cookbook.

Shrimp also known as crabs, shrimps, prawns, shrimps or prawns. While prawns are large Granelen particularly, the smallest shrimp are called. However, properly belong to the scampi lobster family and are often confused with the prawn. But all together is the unique taste and variety of recipe options. Here is a one of my recipe a very simple one “Lutong Bahay”! Nothing special about this just my taste in it πŸ™‚

Crab with zucchini and red pepper

Observing the lent season, always vegetables, fish and “lamang dagat”!
This was lunch for everybody today, Crabs with Zucchini and Red pepper. It’s a kind of viand with soup, for the Blue Crab Broth, rinse the crabs and cut each in half. Simmer the crab legs, crab shells, spring onions, ginger, rice wine, and onion in the boiling water to prepare the stock. Then for the Soup Garnish
cut the zucchini into 3-inch slices. Slice the red peppers and spring onions diagonally. Put the blue crab broth, one tomatoe and zucchini in a medium pot and bring them to a boil. When the zucchini is almost cooked, complete seasoning with salt or patis (fish sauce). Serve with steamed rice.

Shrimps and Broccoli with Chili Sauce

And for tonights dinner was shrimps and broccoli in chili sauce. Always finding a very simple way of cooking but not simple taste for every family member. This was only a try but it trned out so good and everybody ate it all. Broccoli is always good knowing that broccoli contains a high amount of potassium, which helps maintain a healthy nervous system and optimal brain function, as well as promotes regular muscle growth. Broccoli also contains magnesium and calcium that help regulate blood pressure. For those who suffers or who have high blood pressure just like me this good. And not to forget broccoli contains Vitamin C and high levels of both calcium and Vitamin K too. Good for anti cancer and many more…

Garlic and Broccoli

Just saute garlic and broccoli in a pan with canola oil, until broccoli is half-way done.

Broccoli and Shrimps

Then add the peeled shrimps without head.

My Sweet Chili Sauce

Seasoned with sweet chili sauce, salt and pepper. Serve with rice. Guten Appetit Folks!

Sardinas at Repolyo

When the refrigerator has been emptied and all fresh produce have been consumed, it’s time to break into the canned goods. This is my favorite, and to this day, I keep at least a couple of cans in the cupboard at all times. Ligo sardines, of course!
I remember those days in the Philippines…..My family didnt have much money when I was growing up and my mom would have to cook what suited our budget and sure enough, due to lack of money, this dish came up on our menu quite often. She added with misua most of the time, or even with pansit.



LIGO SARDINES - Red and Green

Since 1945, A. Tung Chingco Trading, Inc. has been the exclusive distributor of Ligo products in the Philippines. Mr. Gregory Tung, Sr., known as the founder of A. Tung Chingco Trading made these products known in the Philippines. A fruitful and promising association between A. Tung Chingco and Liberty Gold Fruit Co., Inc. of California, U.S.A. tie-up flourished and made Ligo a market leader in the canned fish industry.

In 1980, A. Tung Chingco Trading, Inc. as it continued its dominance in the canned fish market, perceived the need to put up its own cannery to produce Ligo Sardines and Ligo Mackerel locally and meet the growing demand for its products.
To ensure superior quality, A. Tung Chingco Trading, Inc maintained strict quality-control standards throughout all of the company operations. Ligo products gained prominence in the Philippine market because of its excellent quality and good taste. Since then, Ligo has become synonymous to Good Quality.

In the mid 1980’s, A. Tung Chingco Trading, Inc., under the stewardship of Mr. Gregory Tung, Jr., strengthened its marketing and manufacturing set-up and ventured into the meat products.

From then on, the company engaged in the development of new canned fish and meat products – Ligo Sardines and Mackerel variants, Ligo Squid, and Ligo Corned Beef.

Ligo has gained worldwide popularity. Now, Ligo Sardines and Mackerel are being exported to the United States, Europe, Asia like; Hongkong, Japan, Singapore, Middle and Far East and the Pacific Rim.
Over the years, the brand Ligo has earned a worldwide reputation of product excellence. A. Tung Chingco Trading vision is to manufacture quality products that are affordable to the people.
