Totally addictive and unbelievably good, these sweet and spicy anchovies (dilis) make a delicious appetizer. We eat it with rice and but it pairs well with some ice-cold beer, too! Quick and easy to make, you have something tasty in a matter of minutes!
Heat oil to medium. Add the dilis or anchovies and quickly stir-fry cooking for a minute (or less) just until the fishes have changed to a darker color or about half-cooked. Sprinkle the sugar and spice mix all over and quickly stir-fry. Cook just until everything is mixed through - 30 seconds to about a minute.
Place the cooked dilis in a strainer (lined with paper towel if desired) to drain any excess oil Serve with rice vinegar on the side, if desired. So deliciously addictive!
