On our first day in Sorsogon, my loving mother-in-law prepared Baluko for us – fried and cooked in coconut milk with some hot chili. I wanted to learn so I joined her in the kitchen. She taught me how to clean the shell meat – one just have to remove this hairy-like body part from its mouth.
Eventually, I missed the whole cooking process since I fell asleep.
During dinner, the fried Baluko was like M&M – it melted on my mouth. That’s how tender it was!
