UrMajestySiresFoodExperiments: ‘Kinilaw na Dilis with Lato’ or ‘Anchovy Ceviche with Seaweed’

Sharing my ‘Bisaya’ side of the family’s simple version of ‘kinilaw’ or ‘kilawin’ which has many regional versions in Filipino cooking. Its basically composed of raw fish cleaned (innards removed) marinated in a mix of vinegar, ginger, salt, pepper and chili.

Now ‘ceviche’ is pretty much the same as kinilaw, which is Spanish or Latin American in origin. The differences are that the fish meat is cured using citrus juices and the addition of olive oil.

Farmed and now readily available ¬†at supermarkets, ‘lato’ or ‘caulerpa lentillifera’ is a type of seaweed which resembles small grapes. It is also known as ‘arosep,’ ‘ar-arosep,’ or ‘lato bilog.’

Here’s a simple version, hope you like it and thanks for the click!
