During a wonderful season of bountiful harvest from land to sea in Davao’s month of Kadayawan festivities, the freshest fruits and seafood abound so generously.

Rekado Filipino Comfort Food offers a delectable preparation of crab delights on the menu in time for the city celebration.

The crabs are cooked in three mouthwatering recipes: the Crabs in Oriental Sauce, Salt and Pepper Crabs and Crab Tininghi.

 

Rekado launches three crab dishes in Kadayawan : the Crabs in Oriental Sauce, Salt and Pepper Crabs and Crab Tininghi.

The Crabs in Oriental Sauce is mildly spicy, balanced with a hint of sweetness and the flavored harmony soaked well on deep fried crabs.

The Salt and Pepper Crabs is both fragrant and savory, cooked by tossing fresh crabs in white wine infused with chilis, onions and other flavorful aromatics.

 

One of Rekado’s bestsellers is the Shrimp Tininghi, and Chef Pauline Benedicto-Malilin leveled up the original dish by preparing the Crab Tininghi with a savory paste simmered in coconut milk and sweetened by coconut milk.

“The Kadayawan month is the perfect time to introduce and highlight these crab dishes,” says Chef Pauline. “I’ve had these recipes for so long now and waited for the right moment to launch it and put it alongside the well-loved seafood dishes on the Rekado menu.”

This was an unplanned blue themed outfit — or maybe they were trying to be the ocean to the crabs

 

In a luncheon hosted for friends in Davao media, the chef added two of Rekado’s well-loved dishes to go along with the theme —the Gising-gising, winged beans (sigarilyas) slow cooked in coconut milk and topped with crispy dilis; and the Tuna Panga, fresh tuna of good quality finely seasoned with salt and pepper and basted with sauce of lemon, butter with garlic and grilled over charcoal, topped with roasted garlic and served with Ensaladang Talong, Burong Mangga and soy sauce dipping.

Again, in a sea of black and blue

 

“We’re giving the foodies, especially the seafood lovers, three more good reasons to experience Rekado cuisine. It’s comfort food, but with a twist,” said Tisha Benedicto-Sebastian, the chef’s sister and business partner.
