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.
