Uni-Pak Mackerel Laing Recipe Plus Giveaway

Uni-Pak Mackerel, Yummytales, Travelonshoestring

“Laing” or "Natong" in Bicol dialect is a spicy delicious dish. I grow up loving this yummy dish with all my heart!

Its main ingredients are the following: 

  • Dried taro leaves
  • Coconut milk (or gata) 
  • and Siling Labuyo
This yummy dish originated from my province- the Bicol region ( Region 5 of Luzon Island). Laing has a really yummy taste and budget friendly cost. For the information of everybody this dish is well known not only in Bicol region but also all throughout the Philippines.

Believe it or not, different Laing versions sprung all over the Philippines. While some added more ingredients, others used alternative ingredients. With several variations around, what I am about to show you is not the original Bicol recipe.  For this laing version I used Uni-Pak Mackerel as additional ingredients. Because mackerel is rich in Omega 3.  I hope you will like it too!
Uni-Pak canned goods are imported from Japan and Korea and distributed locally by S-Lord Development Corporation. Food products must meet a certain level of standards to be accepted in the export market. It means that the brand has met that standard, including the Uni-Pak Mackerel in Natural Oil variant.
