Gourmet Tuyo (Dried Herring) in Olive Oil

ABBEY: We happened to have a good amount of tuyo (herring) after our vacation. Thanks to our family and friends for the pasalubong. And recently we started to cook dishes with gourmet tuyo and it cost 300 to 500PHP per jar. We thought why buy it when we can try to make it.

10-15 pcs tuyo (fried then fillet)
1 cup olive oil
1 1/2 cup vinegar
1 bulb garlic (chopped)
2 medium chili padi
sugar
salt

In a pot, heat the oil and then sauté the garlic.
Put in tuyo and chili.
Add vinegar and simmer for a couple of minutes.
Put sugar and salt according to your preference.

WILL: A humble "tuyo" can be oh so glamorous and expensive. Haha! 

My father gave us 4 packs of dried herring and Abbey got an idea. Why will we buy an expensive gourmet tuyo if we can make it for ourselves. He dove on Youtube videos and te-ne-nen!!! Gourmet Tuyo!

It is not salty, it is not that spicy but the olive oil and vinegar gave a good taste! Manyaman! Eat with steaming hot rice. 

Oh! One more thing, for sure there will be oil leftovers. Go on and have an aglio olio pasta!
