"Jute Leaves" in English
The Power of Saluyot....
My recipe here starts by sauteeing minced garlic and chopped onions in a little canola oil. Add a can of labong, (drained) and continue to saute. If using fresh whole shrimps, rinse and blanch them first, then flash saute in butter (not over cooked).
To the sauteed labong, add some rice water or meat broth. bring to a boil, turn down the heat and let it simmer for about 5 minutes, then add some patis, the shrimps or fried fish. Continue to simmer for about 10-15 minutes, then add the Saluyot leaves. Check the saltiness, cook until leaves are wilted but not over cooked. DONE! Mangan tayon!!
This is a very simple everyday viand and very nutritious.
but because I'm allergic to shrimps now a days,
I just used some fried salmon fillet.
I discovered that you can also add fresh corn kernels in this dish.
Saute corn with labong.
