Brush the edges with melted butter to seal. Arrange the roll-ups, with the seams down, on a cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Prepare syrup by combining sugar and water in a pot without stirring. Bring to a boil until amber in color. Continue cooking until the syrup reaches a thread-like consistency. Remove from heat. Cut roll-ups into bite-sized pieces and dip in syrup or drizzle top with syrup. Serve.

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!
