Fried Salted Fish

This is a Filipino food called tuyo or dried and salted whole fish. My teenager nephew here was shocked to see the heads and for him its Ewww.LOL. Anyway, this food supposedly is not good for those who have a "high blood" pressure because it is salty. This is good to eat with white rice and home-made rice coffee during breakfast. Good for snacking too. Salted fish and boiled camote or sweet potato, salted fish and saging na saba or banana plantain.
Not all Filipinos love salted fish though. When you cook the salted fish, the smell is not pleasant. In the provinces, this food is common especially for breakfast and it is easy to prepare. The smell will not linger inside the house too because their kitchen has big windows. Keeping the air flow, in and out the house. Most of the houses in the province have no airconditioning unit. Why? No need for aircondition at all because the weather in the province is cool, fresh and clean.
I call this food as the food for the "common tao" in the Philippines. The smell might not be pleasant for others but for me, it smells good and appetizing. Thanks to Rio again for sending me this gift of food.
