...so lucky to live near a Kam Man(NY/NJ-based chain of Asian grocers). They're a stone's throw away from our house, so near I can walk even. The fish monger gave me this when I was going through the fish in the ice case."This one better." I haven't found out the Tagalog name for it. I wanted to make kid-friendly tod mun,Thai fish patties, which meant that there would be no red curry paste and no thinly sliced yard long beans(sitaw) and it would be just...fish cakes. The flesh was a pretty pink, which I scraped off from the bones and skin (not too many thorny tinik too). My boyboy said I smelled like fish(sabay simangot).
