Fish be In You
I am not a pescatorian (people who eats fish mostly, with some dairy and veggies). I like to eat meat more than I do fish, mainly because I hate tiny or sharp bones to sort or pick out.
Some fish even tastes strongly like...uhh... fish!
I also don’t like fish faces staring at me, eyes wide open, while I eat their flesh and kin.
Unless they look and taste like...these sugary sweet almond paste fishies!
The family loves bangus to smithereens. Every week my mom preps one whole fish for daing and one to stuff with tomatoes and onions, wrapped in banana leaves or aluminum foil and grilled on a coal fired stove. That last is called inihaw. Daing, I eat. It is milkfish marinated in vinegar, salt, pounded garlic, peppercorns, and maybe chilis; then fried. I still don’t eat the belly part. See? Perfectly good bangus wasted on me.
Peace : )!
P.s. Just to clarify, Chef Ed has nothing to do with the milkfish sausage and nuggets. The almond paste (excuse me, fondant pala) fishies just perks up the page some, don't it? Of course, I just have to have cake in here.
