How about this? A very ugly but tasted good after grilling. Quite big also, however its not obvious by looking at the photo.

Dorado, Dolphin or Mahi-Mahi in the west, here they are called Mamsa! VERY good eating! That one is a cow (female) as the male (bull) has a much larger head.

I think that's a Fukushima fish...but I could be wrong.

One more eye and you'd be right.

James, if she could tell me some recipes for this fish, that would be great! It was not too good BBQ-d, kinda tough meat, resembles more of beef than a fish.

The Dorado is AKA Mahi Mahi AKA Dolphin Fish.

Lapu Lapu or Grouper is firm meaty fish, so "beefy" as you say. But cooked well it lasts until the next meal without refrigeration.

 

For Lapu-Lapu recipes just Google Grouper recipes. There are a brazillion of them.

That's freakin sweet the fishermen bring they're catch to you.

 

How much did that sucker weigh and how much did you pay for it?

 

I believe Lapu Lapu goes for about 200 per kilo at the market right now.

I knew the lady in the wet market was crazy here. They look "somewhat" the same to non fisher people and I saw a Jack type animal in another market and they told me "that" was Mamsa. Thanks for the word dude!!

Depends on what "market" you go to. Supermarket, they will run all over the map from P350-550. Wet market P280-P360. Last I looked, but we have been having fish delivered lately so I am not current.

I don't think it was sweet only for me - they sold their big fish (5.5kg) for me with no hassle minutes after the catch, no need to go to market and trying to avoid the fish rot by the end of the day. (Funny thing, in the Moalboal market they don't use ice to chill the fish. Just throw on the desk.... I would never buy fish there.)

Much more common here than otherwise. In fact, most of the smaller markets you will find no ice. Some use formaldehyde to make the fish appear fresh.

One more reason for buying directly from fishermen.
