This easy as a pie recipe (sorry for the wordplay!) will make you get precious Omega-3 from fish dishes more often. Cooking time is less than 15 minutes! The recipe comes from a restaurant called Squidos, in El Nido, Philippines.

A small town El Nido in Palawan group of islands, Philippines is a tiny but precious gem among the world’s most picturesque places. But apart from stunning views one can find a lot of foody treasures there. Numerous cafes, restaurants, bars, food stalls offer dishes of local and international cuisine. Us, we tried a number of places but our personal favourite turned out to be a restaurant called Squidos, a cozy place in Calle Hama. One of their dishes was so good that we had one order of it every night and took the recipe home. Super simple, healthy, yummy!
