    BTW, bagoong alamang is not anchovies, but shrimp.

  7. Ray Says:

    3 cups of peanut butter I think is just right. What makes this dish appealing, especially to American Pinoys, is that peanut butter taste. I actually throw in peanuts along with the peanut butter.

  8. Calgary Filipino Says:
