Ever Heard of the Maya-Maya?

BradleyFood, Life in the Philippines8 Comments

A maya-maya fish on the chopping block at the wet market in Antipolo, Philippines.

It’s a big ugly bastard of a fish, with it’s big head being the biggest part.  If I laid my hand across it, from the bottom of the head to the top, my fingers wouldn’t get past the eye.  I was kind of shocked when I saw it laying there, not so much just because of its size, but because of how disproportionate it is.

Despite it’s odd appearance, it made a might fine soup.
