Ginamos (Salted Small Fish)
Mary's Vinegar with spices
Sweet Corn, Bananas and Ginamos
I miss eating the native magoes we have in Philippines, the sour ones. It's best with Ginamos and Bagoong. Bagoong is the tagalog word for Uyap. It is called salted small shrimp in english. It is pink in color but dark brown when cooked. Like ginamos, it tastes good too with mango and rice. I haven't tried that with corn or bananas. Just with mango and rice.

Mud colored (sometimes in outrageous pink or whathaveyou), funny & strong smelling, and a famous Filipino concoction, this is...Bagoong Terong or simply bagoong, and bugguong in the Ilocano language, is a common ingredient used in the Philippines and particularly in Northern Ilocano Cuisine. It is made by salting and fermenting the bonnet mouth fish. This bagoong is coarser than Bagoong Monamon, and contains fragments of the salted and fermented fish; however, they are similar in flavor. To the opinion of many Westerners who are unfamiliar with this condiment, the smell can be extremely repulsive. Bagoong is however an essential ingredient in many curries and sauces. The odor is distinct and unique.
Fish sauce, common throughout Southeast Asian cuisine, is a by-product of the bagoong process. Known in the Philippines as patis, it is distinguished as the clear refined layer floating on the thicker bagoong. Patis and bagoong can be interchanged in recipes, depending on personal taste and preference.Bagoong is used as a flavor enhancing agent in the place of salt, soy sauce, or monosodium glutamate (MSG). It is used to make a fish stock, the base of many Ilocano dishes, such as pinakbet, dinengdeng, inabraw; or as a dressing for cold steamed greens in the dish kinilnat (ensalada), like ferns, bitter melon leaves, or sweet potato leaves. Bagoong is also used as a condiment, or dipping sauce, for chicharon, whole fried fish, green and ripe mangoes, or hard boiled eggs.It is similar in taste and odor to anchovy paste. -- Wikipedia
