Andi Eigenmann made her own dried fish in her latest YouTube vlog.
The actress demonstrated the step-by-step process of making dried fish or what they call buyad on Siargao island.
"This is the time on the island na minsan na lang 'yung sunny weather. Kaya ngayon we want to take advantage [of the sunny weather] and gagawa kami ng buyad. Inexplain lang sa akin ni papa ng konti kung paano ‘to gawin," Andi said.
Andi used fresh fish, vinegar, salt water, salt, and pepper to make the buyad.
"The reason why I like to make home-made buyad is because mahirap makahanap ng hindi gaano ka-alat. Gusto namin kami magtimpla ng saltiness. Instead of using a whole lot of salt, we are using salt water from the ocean," she shared.
Andi demonstrated how the slicing and the deboning of the fish is done when it comes to making buyad.
After mixing all the ingredients with the fish, she dried up the fish by placing them on the rooftop.
"For the last part is the buyad part aka bilad. That's where the term buyad came from. In tagalog tuyo," she said.
They gathered the dried fish the next day.
"It is the next day. Iche-check na namin 'yung buyad namin kung kumusta na siya. Rainy season na but thank you Lord dahil maaraw today," she relayed.
Andi noted, "The buyad is completely dried up but we'll keep it in the fridge and let it rest first to be eaten tomorrow."
The next day, after surfing, Andi fried the dried fish for their meal. She also made another dish out of the buyad by mixing vegetables with it.
"Nabanggit ng kids na isa sa magandang gawin sa buyad ay gawin siyang panlasa sa gata so sakto we have leftover gulay and we are going to mix it with the pinaglutuan ng buyad tapos ihalo namin sa gulay. Bumili kami ng gata sa tindahan," she said.
By the end of the video, shared a meal with her kids with the buyad dishes.
