There are a few different methods you can use:Steaming: Place the thawed ekwang in a steamer basket or on a steaming rack. Steam the ekwang over boiling water for about 10-15 minutes or until heated through. The steaming method helps retain the moisture and texture of the ekwang.Microwave: If you prefer a quicker method, you can use a microwave. Transfer the thawed ekwang to a microwave-safe dish and cover it with a microwave-safe lid or microwave-safe plastic wrap. Heat it on medium power for 2-3 minutes, then check for doneness. Continue heating in short intervals until the ekwang is thoroughly heated.Stovetop: Another option is to reheat the ekwang on the stovetop. Place the thawed ekwang in a covered pan or pot and warm it over low to medium heat. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking or burning. Heat the ekwang for approximately 10-15 minutes or until it is heated through.Check for doneness: Once reheated, check the ekwang for doneness. It should be heated throughout, piping hot, and safe to eat. If necessary, continue heating for a few more minutes until desired temperature is reached.Serve and enjoy: Once the ekwang is reheated and fully cooked, remove it from the heat source. Serve the ekwang as a main dish or side dish, accompanied by your preferred sauce or protein.
