Sizzling Bangus is a delicacy not everyone will and can enjoy. Fortunately, not all Sizzling Bangus are made the same. If you have barely enough food for rice then, rather than eating it with salt or whatever, why not enjoy it with Sizzling Bangus and here is how.
I don’t often blog about food because the kinds of food I eat are no way near the kinds of food most food bloggers eat and blogs about. I’ve visited a few food blogs and the food or dishes they feature are simply amazing to look at and I’m sure they all taste good as well. Unfortunately, I don’t have the financial resources nor the luxury of experiencing those kind of food or dishes.

For example, there are times when we have only enough money for rice and I’m not ashamed or embarrassed to say it because it’s the truth. Now, eating rice alone is very difficult. We need something to go along with it to enjoy eating it. I’m not sure what’s the English word for it but we call it “ulam” in Filipino or Tagalog.
Have you heard the term “magdildil ng asin”? Well, this may shock you but it’s true with most Filipino families but, in our case, we don’t use salt with our rice. We eat our rice with Sizzling Bangus. Wow! Now, that’s a delicacy. We have no money for “ulam” but we get to eat our rice with Sizzling Bangus.
Unfortunately, I’m not talking about that kind of Sizzling Bangus. The Sizzling Bangus I’m referring to is not cooked by any chef nor was it prepared or ordered from any restaurant. This particular Sizzling Bangus is sold in a small plastic package and you can probably buy it from a Sari-Sari Store near your home.
As you can see from the picture above, it’s actually a small pack of Fish Cracker and it’s called Sizzling Bangus. It’s covered with MSG and it’s very flavorful. I know, it’s not healthy but it’s better than eating our rice with salt and it only cost us 1 peso per pack. Thanks to this Sizzling Bangus we could eat our rice without problems.
Anyway, if you are going through a tough time and you barely have enough money for rice then you could probably try complimenting your rice with Sizzling Bangus. Of course, don’t do it everyday because it’s not healthy specially if you have young kids at home. If you can still afford something decent then only get Sizzling Bangus as a last resort.
Unfortunately, the reality of life is, not everyone can afford a decent meal everyday and that is why I make it a point to thank our Lord, Jesus Christ, for every food he gives us. No matter how grand or simple our food maybe, I know it didn’t come from the kitchen out of nowhere, it came as a blessing from above.
