Fish Sarciado refers to meat or seafood cooked in tomato sauce. For this dish, we will be using fresh tomatoes instead of tomato sauce. This is easy to prepare and budget friendly too.

Sarciado is a fish dish from the Philippines which features tomatoes and eggs. The name sarsiado in the Tagalog language means “cooked with a thick sauce”. The name is derived from the Filipino word sarsa which in turn is from the Spanish word “salsa”, which means “sauce”.
