Chocolate Sticky Rice with Dried Herring

In all the cuisines of the world, are there any desserts that feature fish or fish products as ingredients? Strictly speaking, it's not a dessert, says JungMann, but the Filipino dish of champorado at tuyo pairs chocolate sticky rice with dried herring. It's typically eaten for breakfast, but it can serve as a snack anytime. "It's like Asian Cocoa Pebbles ... with fish," says JungMann.

Champorado at tuyo is a very simple dish, and quality ingredients really make it shine. "A high quality chocolate with dark earthiness will make perfect champorado, while your tuyo should be thoroughly dried, escaping the chewiness that sometimes comes with inferior preparations," says JungMann.
