Dulong is a very tiny fish, barely an inch and quite transparent in appearance with beady eyes. It is cooked in many ways like sautéed, “pinaksiw” or “pinangat” (both cooked in vinegar) , also used in omelet, and as gourmet food in bottles – Dulong in Olive Oil.
Dulong is also a healthier alternative to meat patties, you can replace your burger patties with Crispy Dulong Patties.
