My whole family loves this fish except for me until recently. When I see them on the table, I pass up a meal. But during the weekend, I was able to change my mind about them. I now happen to love Tawilis too like the rest of my family and household.
I hate fish bones especially the ones that are small and are too thin to see. During breakfast over the weekend, they served crunchy tawilis in our Tagaytay home. I am a sucker for anything crunchy. And when I saw how crunchy the fish(es) looked, I couldn't help but give myself numerous servings of fried rice.
The fish was so crunchy. All I left on my plate was the fish heads which when I tried to eat them, I almost finished them all. The small fish heads are also so good.
Fried crunchy tawilis are as good as golden crispy bacon on the breakfast table.
