Lusog Notes

Fish is a good source of protein that helps repair of body tissues. This Bacalao dish is also a source of calcium that is good for bones and teeth and iron for making red blood cells that carry oxygen around the body.

Chef's Tip

Soaking the daing in water overnight removes the excess salt from the dried fish. It also brings back the moisture to fish and makes it more pliable.
