I'm not an expert when it comes to writing recipes and even if I read a recipe, I never follow it to the dot especially the measurements. I always base the taste of whatever I'm cooking on how my my tastebuds react, in other words, "to taste" has always been my concept. So bear with me on my first try at writing a recipe. Measurements of ingredients below are estimates of how much I put into the Binagoongan I cooked last week.
This is for you Zita, for urging me to write my recipe for Binagoongan. My Binagoongan is nothing special, I just put together the recipe that was handed down to me by my mum and some tips I read online.
Here's my ingredients:
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 onions, chopped
3 tablespoons of shrimp paste (bagoong)
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 tablespoon of vinegar
1 tablespoon Canola Oil (you may also use Vegetable Oil or Olive Oil)
1/2 cup of water
