Foodamn Philippines: Spicy Crispy Dilis Recipe

Dilis or anchovy are abundant in flea markets and groceries. Fishermen and locals sun-dried the dilis for longer shelf life. Either they stocked-up foods for the rainy days or they trade it to to suppliers in exchange for money to buy on other essential goods. 

But recently, Foodamn Philippines being a Divisoria hunter was able to explore an alley behind DM, a pile of dried dilis, dried pusit and anything under the sun can be seen in Divisoria at a cheaper price compare to groceries where they triple the cost.

I'm like a fisherman's logic, I stock some on the fridge, hoping one craving day, there's an alternative stuff to prepare. And dilis is a memory-enhancer food, I have no problem with my kid, it's one of her favorite finger-food. :)

Dried dilis is commonly cooked pan fried matched with vinegar dip. Add spice and flavor, you'll end up with a Spicy Crispy Dilis. Here's how it's done.
