Many small and tiny fish are salted and dried in the Philippines and are generally called Daing, but herring and sardines are important enough to have their own name, Tuyo.
While it is now used in pasta dishes and other fancy recipes, it is still a popular breakfast dish. Fried almost crisp, it is accompanied by rice, often garlic fried rice, and a spiced vinegar dip. they can also be fried up as a snack at other times of the day, but always served with a spiced vinegar dip (usually spiced with chilis).
In New Brunswick, you can get Tuyo/Dried Herring and other Filipino grocery items from AngKapitbahay – your friendly neighborhood online grocery store serving Philippine products to New Brunswick residents.
