I love salted fish, salted eggs, salted vegetables, salted everything. When I was younger, I was a big kid for my age, and people always asked me what I ate, since I was so big. My to-go answer was always "salted fish, salted eggs, salted vegetables."
There is so much to do with salted fish, but unfortunately, it is very expensive. My maternal grandmother just got some for $80/kg (obviously she couldn't buy one whole kg since it's so expensive.) The salted fish we used for the fried rice today was given by my maternal grandmother. My maternal grandmother is the head chef of the family, and everything she cooks is just simply delicious. Everything. Among the grandchildren, we say that even grandma's shit tastes good. *haha*
