Life is randomly sad without chicken meat – fried, marinated, smoked, and whatnot, because chicken is life! But as carnivorous as it may sound, people tend to get sick of chicken meat. Sometimes, we look for something different in the palette. Whenever we end on this point, I always tend to reach out for something different but easy, specifically for something not too savory, but not bland and most importantly, healthy at the same time.
There’s just those moments when out of the blue, my mind would think of a mackerel straight out of can poured on a bowl… My mouth voluntarily salivates as I imagine gnawing on its white tiny soft fish bone while drenching my hot bagong-saing rice with its cold (room temperature) broth – it makes the hot rice cool enough for a big scoop of rice. Drizzling it with something sour (like lemon, if walang lemon, kalamansi. Walang kalamansi, vinegar! Naubusan ng vinegar, slice of kamias!) makes it even better!
