We call the fish 'malaga', one of the expensive fish in our region. The fish have a mean meat and the taste is delicious, I think more delicious than any kind of tuna. The best recipe for this is 'sinigang' or ginger base soup added with kamote young leaves, onions and the ginger. The not so sour taste is so good for the meal. Just had our lunch today.

We had this menu yesterday. I love the "malaga's" meat (vermiculated spinefoot's meat )

The meat is really delicious, my co-worker said its not good for those who have high BP, but my another co-worker responded "that's why we have medicines"

@ilocosboy that is a wrong response. saying that there are medicines to treat the hypertension is not a proper answer for a health-conscious person. how about limiting the intake of that fish so there will be no high blood pressure?

believe me manang, this is best in sinigang and grilled, frying will spoil the good taste.

Delicious. Add some chili and fish sauce and that will be the best.
