The bigger sizes can be cut into slices best for frying, and of course you can always cook it as paksiw or adobo. Tulingan is also good for ginataan. The big ones are good for grilling, just grill the whole fish in charcoal.

  1. That fish (and dish) looks lovely. Wish we had fish like that in Scandinavia.

  2. There's a dearth of the variety of fish in the market in Cavite where I buy my seafood supply, but there's always tulingan, so it always features in our weekly menu. The small ones we boil and fry, or grill. The big ones are cooked with kamias until dry, or ginataan.

  3. To Kai and Fiskeri,
    Skipjact tuna or tulingan is always available here in Abu Dhabi when in season...

  4. where did the cooking oil go?

  5. To Anonymous, thanks for highlighting, I already removed the cooking oil from the ingredients.
