There are various techniques to remove the malansa-ness from the salmon head:
- you can soak them in salt water for a few hours before thoroughly rinsing them again before using
- you can also parboil it first to remove the fishiness and impurities
- I’ve also heard of people rubbing the fish with vodka to remove the fishy smell
- generally accepted Asian wisdom says you must use ginger, scallions, garlic and similar herbs when you cook with “fishy” fish to remove the fishiness
I like salmon head because they are tasty and meaty! And the meat on the salmon head, especially the cheeks and at the top part of the “neck” at the back of the head, is soft & silky!
This is what they’ve posted on their Facebook page:
