My husband would really eat anything I cook. I know this coz he tells me all the time and he does eat anything I serve him. When I’m thinking out loud what to make, or when I ask him what he wants to eat for lunch or dinner he’ll say, “make anything, you know I’ll eat it.” However, there’s one dish he’ll never eat. That’s fish head soup. Being a Filipino I’ve had my fair share of fish head soup growing up. The latter involves a fish head, sour broth, and veggies. It’s pretty much like any sour soup we love to call SINIGANG, either with chicken or pork.
With my husband’s frequent fishing trips you’d think I’m taking advantage of using the fish head all the time but that’s not the case at all. When he cleans the fish that means the head goes too. I don’t mind, really. I only ask him to save the head when I get the craving or the ambition to deal with cooking a fish head. When he caught the 5-pound bass last month it just didn’t feel right to throw away the head after I cut up the steaks for the sweet and sour dish so I saved it to make sinigang bass head soup. Since I was the only one in the family who would eat this it took me 4 days to finish it. I just warmed up a bowl in the microwave to eat for lunch.
