Inihaw na Talakitok sa Hotplate. Sometimes it is more convenient to grill a fish using your regular stove using hotplate. This will spare you of all the troubles of preparing your outdoor barbeque grill for just one serving of fish for the lunch or dinner. Be aware also that grilling fish indoors will trap all the smoke and fumes created in grilling fish indoors. Therefore I would suggest grill your fish only outdoors if your kitchen and stove do not have a working exhaust fan.
