Tabas

When I was a kid, I used to stay at my Grandma's place for vacation along with my cousin Tata. Every May, we went to the seaside at my Aunt's and stay there for days. Her husband is a fisherman up to now, and he gets home with a lot of fish. There was one that we loved to eat, we call it tabas. I am not sure what it's called in english but it looks like the ones on the pic. It is flat and has shiny scales. The meat is sweet and you can eat it in different ways. Grilled, soup, raw, fried or adobo. During summer, there were plenty of these so we got to enjoy the fish all the time. I love it grilled. The scale is easy to remove when it is cooked. So growing up, we always have this fish every summer. Have you tried it?
