Ligo sardines recipes
There are a lot of ways to prepare Ligo sardines. These are some of the common ones:
Sautéed Ligo sardines
Sauté onions and garlic in oil then add in Ligo sardines. Add some salt and extra seasoning to taste and some water if you want it saucy. It’s really that simple. Nothing fancy, but just the way we love it.
Sautéed Ligo sardines with vegetables
Do the sautéed Ligo sardines recipe but then make sure you add water to cook the vegetables. Add choice of vegetables – should be sliced or diced. Wait for the vegetables to cook and you’re all done. Water depends on how much sauce you want.
Ligo sardines scrambled with eggs (Torta)
A favorite for breakfast! Sauté in some onions and garlic in oil. Add in some sliced tomatoes then add the Ligo sardines. Add in some scrambled eggs and mix until all eggs are mixed up with the sardines. Don’t forget to add in some salt and extra seasoning (Magic Sarap and Ajinomoto will do fine)
Ligo sardines with noodles (Odong)
This is by far the most amazing of all Ligo sardines recipes – sauté some onions and garlic, plus some tomatoes, add Ligo sardines; add vegetables of choice and then add the noodles (Odong) – This should be a yellowish noodle commonly bought on sari sari stores in the Philippines. Note that you should only add the noodles once the vegetables are ready to be cooked.
Ligo sardines in seafood spaghetti
Since the common Ligo sardine is already in Tomato sauce, you can add in some to your seafood spaghetti. Just remember not to put in too much of the sauce and not to overcook it. Too much of the sauce will cover the spaghetti sauce and overcooking it will mash the sardines.
