Spicy Adobong Tahong (KETO, Low Carb)

Spicy Adobong Tahong (KETO, Low Carb)

Happy Hump Day!

I know it’s not exactly “happy” because it’s the start of EECQ (you know, Extended Enhanced Community Quarantine) but let’s make do of what we have today and be happy about it. They say this EECQ is gonna be until April 30 but I highly doubt it. I’m thinking we need at least 3-6 months if we’re gonna #FlattenTheCurve.

Oh, and I figured with all these eating — I would also need to “Flatten MY curve”… heehee.

So I think I’ll start working out tomorrow…but I don’t think I can stop eating! Gosh, ang sarap kumain when you’re at home with family.

Adobo is always a hit and a regular on the menu rotation. I just rotate chicken, pork, and the adobo variant. Now this Spicy Adobong Tahong just became the new superstar and I now keep a stash in the freezer whenever it’s available at the market.

Spicy Adobong Tahong (KETO, Low Carb)

I use Mussels that are already steamed and shells are removed. To get about 500g of mussel meat, you’ll need at least 2kg of mussels with shells. I just sauté that in oil and garlic, then add coco aminos, soy sauce, vinegar, and bay leaf. Exact measurement is below. Sorry it’s late but here’s the recipe to my Spicy Adobong Tahong.

NOTE: If you’re not on keto and is not using coco aminos, you can just use soy sauce and add a bit of sugar for sweetness.

I hope you’re well. I hope there’s sunshine and fresh air in your week!

Ako, I’m getting my sunshine habang nagsasampay ng damit sa umaga. Kayo ba?
