Ginataang Upo With Fried Fish Recipe

The simple but giant upo is a great vegetable side dish.

IMAGE Majoy Siason

The bottle gourd, or upo as it's locally known, is actually one of the most affordable vegetables on the market. Plus, its shape makes it easy to prepare since there aren't any odd protrusions that make it hard to slice and it easily cooks in minutes. It is these qualities that make it a fantastic ingredient to use in quick-cooking dishes for when you need to put something delicious and hearty on the table fast. 

Pair the upo with gata, or coconut milk, for another element of flavor while the dried fish is a wonderful boost of saltiness and meatiness that rounds out the flavor of the dish wonderfully.
