This dish is quick and easy to make. The entire process takes less than 30 minutes and the steps can easily be performed even by beginners.

Note that the dried fish that I used for this recipe is the meaty kind. These are larger dried fish that are somewhat hard to find if you are outside of the Philippines. For your convenience, you can use the regular dried fish sold in Filipino stores. However, make sure to remove the fish bones first before cooking. You may also want to try our other ginisa recipe involving sitaw.

How to cook ginisang kalabasa at sitaw with daing

Start to cook this ginisang kalabasa dish by sautéing the garlic and onion. Once done, add the shredded dried fish and cook for a few seconds before adding the kalabasa (squash). Stir fry for 1 to 2 minutes and then add water. The water will help soften the squash. Make sure to cover the pan and cook in medium heat until the water evaporates almost completely.
Add the string beans and stir fry for 1 to 2 minutes. The water should have completely evaporated at this point. Pour-in the fish sauce, which is our seasoning for this dish, and then sprinkle some ground black pepper. Serve this dish with warm white rice.
