Sour and Spicy 'Shrooms (Mushroom Sisig)
Sisig (SEE-sig) is traditionally made with chopped pig's face and served on a sizzling hot platter. The mushrooms here mimic the chewy-meaty quality of pork and don't take nearly as long to prepare. You still get all the salty, tangy, and spicy flavors. And no face gets chopped!
Philippine limes (calamansi) have a juice that's unparalleled. They taste like a cross between mandarin orange, lemon, and yuzu. At Asian markets, look for bottled unsweetened
juice on the shelf, or frozen juice packets, often sold near banana leaves. In a pinch, substitute a half-and-half mixture of lemon and lime juice and a dash of sugar.
