Moonfish or "Hiwas"

We were introduced with this fish by my mother when we were so much younger. Although we love its taste, it is seldom served in our family.

I tried introducing this to my kids who love eating fish instead of of beef or pork. I'm so glad they liked its taste as well.

I only know of three ways on how to served this fish: fried, paksiw (with vinegar sauce), and pinangat. But I know there's a lot way of cooking it.

Aside from bangus (milkfish), cream dory fillet and tilapia, hiwas now is on their favorite fish list.

Hiwas, I learned, is a rich source of protein, niacin, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, phosphorus, and selenium. It is also low in sodium and a source of omega-3.
