I can’t remember the last time I had marlin. It think it was in Seattle, back in the day. The fish tasted good, but it has a tendency to get dry pretty quickly. This was a bit on the dry side, but I think that’s why they suggested it be cooked with a sauce. My friend also requested some chopped tomatoes and onions to add more moisture and flavor.

Mmm, this squid was so good! They were grilled just right so that the squid weren’t tough and chewy. I loved eating the heads and eyes. Hehe!

This was a new, amazing experience for me! So there’s a great fish market a few blocks from the Boracay Regency called d*talipapa. You’re supposed to go purchase whatever you want to eat, then bring your fresh seafood to the cooking service restaurants in the market to cook it up for you! Awesome, right? Thank goodness my friend Robert is fluent in Tagalog because I don’t think I could have haggled with the fish mongers and then communicated with the cooks to let them know how we wanted the food the be prepared.

These prawns were SO good! They were super fresh and had so much flavor. I guess when you have that much butter and garlic, everything is better. 🙂
