Who Doesn't Love Shrimps?

As far as I can remember, I can finish kilos of shrimps all by myself.
When I was growing up, we always stay in the province during summer. I remember clearly the endless Manangs arriving at our family house laden with fresh seafood. From jumping shrimps to crabs with giant claws to shiny fishes. My aunts would even joked that I and my cousins would all turn into sirena and siokoy (mermaid and merman) because of our love for seafood.

There's one story circulating in the province that time about a young fisherman having caught a mermaid in his met on the night of the full moon. But since the mermaid is a magical creature, it disappeared when the clouds covered the moon. The fisherman was then left heart-broken. Talaga lang ha!

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!
