Spicy tuyo and turon de pastillas

Dressing up plain dishes can be exciting and challenging, like what the fairy godmother did to Cinderella. Tuyo (salted herring) and turon na saging na saba (plantain rolls) are just two of these. On native cuisine, it is typical to pair dry, salty tuyo with thick, creamy champorado and the sweet and salty duo is just delicious. Turon made of saba are coated with brown sugar, which are widely available from street vendors. Tuyo in olive oil are now common as canned goods and banana-que becomes a quick bite to stop hunger pangs and to boost instant energy. Two recipes here are edited versions that you will like to try and go on, let your taste buds discover a new taste from the revamped tuyo and turon.

What's not to like? The spicy herring in olive oil can give a subtle saltiness on both pasta and rice while the turon de pastillas can replace the simple—although already scrumptious turon that we all know for generations.
