Big Ben’s Kitchen Adobong Tagalog Burritos

Want a quick ready to eat and baon-ready dish? Here is a recipe for you using Big Ben’s Kitchen Adobong Tagalog. Yes you heard it right chicken adobo in a bottle.

A burrito is a dish in Mexican cuisine that consists of tortilla with various fillings. It is wrapped into a closed-ended cylinder folded around the fillings. 

3 cups java rice or garlic rice
6 large flour burritos, heated on a dry pan
1 bottle Big Ben's Kitchen Adobong Tagalog
2 pieces scrambled egg, sliced
tomatoes, chopped
iceberg lettuce, chopped

1 tsp garlic, chopped
2 tbsp mayonnaise 
1/4 cup evap milk 

Mix the ingredients and set aside. 

Place burrito on a flat board. On top of burrito, layer 1/2 rice, adobo flakes, scrambled egg, tomatoes, lettuce. Roll up, tucking ends in. Serve with sauce. 

Note: You can wrap each tightly in foil and place on freezer. Just reheat in the microwave when you are ready to eat.

The chicken is so soft almost melts in your mouth. 
This adobo has this distinct yummy flavor because of the coconut oil.  
Worth the price of P200 per bottle.

Taste - 5/5
Value for Money - 5/5

Pan Grilled Teriyaki Fish Fillets

I call this teriyaki but actually this is not real teriyaki since rather than mirin and sake I use calamansi.

Fish fillets (of your choice)
calamansi juice
1 1/2 tsp sugar
2 tbsp Maggi soy sauce
minced garlic
1 tsp vegetable oil

To make the teriyaki glaze, mix calamansi juice, minced garlic sugar and soy sauce together according to taste. Boil until slightly thick.
Dust the fish fillets with corn flour. Heat a frypan over medium heat until very hot and add the oil. Fry for about four minutes (two minutes on each side) then add the teriyaki glaze.
Continue to cook for about two to three minutes, turning the fish through the glaze every minute or so until the glaze is thick, glossy and holding as a dark coating on the fish, and the fish is cooked through.
Remove the fish from the pan and pour over any remaining glaze to serve.
