This is so easy to make. Fry tons of garlic (to lessen the guilt from eating aligue or crab fat, maybe) in butter (yes, not olive oil or corn oil) and when the garlic begins to smell (garlicky!), add some shrimps (optional) then the aligue. Cook for a minute or two before adding your rice. Then garnish with strips of fresh basil (optional).
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!
