Adobo is one of the major dishes here in the Philippines. In fact, a lot of people, especially tourists, automatically think of Adobo when asked what their favorite Filipino dish is. Well, that is no surprise given that Adobo is a staple in Filipino households.

The thing is Adobo actually comes in different forms, not only when it comes to its protein ingredient, but also to its seasoning which gives it a different look depending on who is the one serving and where the one serving is from. The Adobo we grew up with actually is the one that is more of a brown × black color, but there is also a version which is called Adobong Puti.

And as we have grown up with the first mentioned Adobo type, that’s the one we are going for today. However, as we have said, Adobo also comes with different proteins or main ingredient — some have pork, others have vegetables as their main ingredient, and of course, there are also seafood adobo out there and that’s what we are going to focus.

Seafood Adobo also has different versions and today, we decided to go with Adobong Pusit. This type of Adobo is commonly cooked at home, especially in ours, as well as in carinderias or eateries.
