Comments:

Grilling a fish is very simple, with sprinkle of calamansi, salt and pepper and it is ready to go to the grill!
Calamansi will eliminate the “langsa” on the fish and salt & pepper will add flavor to it. While brushing melted butter with powder achuete will enhance its flavor and color.
You can use any kind of whole fish of your choice like tilapia, bangus (milkfish), or any other popular fish for pompano. You may not need any dip anymore for the garnish will already serve as one.
