Try this unique delicacy from an island in Eastern Visayas, Philippines

‘Pudpod’ is smoked fish patty made from tuna. Seasoned with salt, pepper, and calamansi or lime, locals shape the shredded tuna into patties and have these smoked in a bamboo set-up. The patties can be eaten as is, fried, or even cooked with coconut milk and vegetables. Locals say this is one way to preserve fish catch before refrigerators were invented.
