Galunggong is one of the kinds/varieties of fish available in the markets all over the Philippines. It is also known by its short name GG and very popular as a source of food because it is one of the cheapest fish so far available in the markets which can be prepared/cooked in so many ways and will remain delicious. They can be fried, smoked, grilled , and boiled with just vinegar and slices of ginger and yet so delicious
Galunggong is called Round Scad or Hard-Tail Mackarel in English. In other provinces of the Philippines, Galunggong is called Muro-Muro and Hawol-Hawol
This is called Galunggong in the Philippines, used to be the fish for the "poor" probably because it was the cheapest fish way back when I was small. My sister-in-law makes something nice with this fish. I loved it fried and cooked with lots on chopped onions, garlic and tomatoes called Sarciado. My mommy used to make this beautiful dish for us.
