Gustazo Gourmet Tuyo Open-Faced Sandwich Recipe and Gustazo Pomodoro Tinapa Soft Tacos Recipe (Gustazo Gourmet Easy Recipes and a Giveaway!)
One of the things that makes a kitchen distinctly Filipino is the unwavering presence of two most well-loved Pinoy delicacies ~ Tuyo and Tinapa. I for one grew up in a household which pantry never ran out of these two. Patriotic treats for some while stable stars on the table for others, Tuyo (Dried Herring) and Tinapa (Smoked Mackerel) are Filipino comfort food that can commensurate to a beautiful nostalgia when eaten.
Tuyo and tinapa are without a doubt always delicious. A poor man’s feast, these two are. And while both of these delicious treats are relatively easy to prepare, Gustazo has made enjoying tuyo and tinapa alongside some of their products all the more convenient through their bottled products.
Since its inception, Gustazo expanded its product repertoire and now it boasts of Gourmet Tuyo (Mild and Regular, Pomodoro Tinapa, Sundried Tomato Sardines, Lemon Garlic Sardines, Chunky Bagoong, Bangus ala Pobre, and Bacalo de Manila.
Two of my favorites are Gustazo’s Gourmet Tuyo Mild and Gustazo’s Pomodoro Tinapa. Since I lean on the adventurous type of the spectrum, I usually incorporate these two on my kitchen creations. Trust me, incorporating Gustazo’s bottled gourmet products could turn a simple recipe into something amazing.
A bowl of garlic rice and some fried eggs are perfect combination that complements this gourmet tuyo, but aside from that, I love having it on my sandwich.
Making a sandwich is relatively easy. There are no rules, really. Just grab everything edible you love and stack ‘em up. For this recipe, I was channeling my all time favorite, Eggs Benedict. Since I do not have English muffin on hand and I want some greens on my mix, open-faced sandwich is the way to go. I also use cream cheese because it does a great job in tempering the taste of the fish and it goes perfectly well with the Hollandaise sauce.

Gustazo Gourmet Tuyo (as much as you want, depending on the size of your good ol’ bread)

Fish taco is always a healthy option for those who has affinity for this Mexican fare. In contract to the usual breaded fish fillet, my soft taco recipe calls for shredded Gustazo Pomodoro Tinapa which yields the same exciting flavor.

Gustazo Pomodoro Tinapa shredded
