It’s a product from the Philippines – dried fish bones, also known as Tocino. A Filipino friend gave this to me. I decided to give it a try.
As per Filipino instructions, I fried it in oil. Be warned. This stuff burns very quickly. Make sure you fry on low heat.
Here are the fried fish bones. The consequences of frying at low heat – oiliness. The bones are softest at the thinnest areas, but the thicker areas were quite a challenge to chew.
