'Butete' dish downs 7 in Anao-aon

A dish made from butete (puffer fish) downed at least seven people last Thursday in Surigao del Norte province in Mindanao.

Radio dzXL on Friday night cited belated police report saying the incident occurred around 8 a.m. Thursday in Linungganan village in San Francisco (Anao-aon) town.

Cook Marcelino Bantilan, 44, said he regretted preparing the dish because many of the victims were his relatives.

The other six victims included Joynilo Palomares, 22; Claudio Bantilan, 44; Joward Madrona, 24; Freddie Jun Pacot, 30; Ronald Amoncio, 22; and Jimboy Roxas, 12.

Bantilan said he cooked the fish Thursday morning after getting it from a neighbor.

However, many of the victims began vomiting and feeling weak after eating the dish. They were rushed to the hospital. — LBG, GMANews.TV

wow these guys must be starving. why eat that ugly fish when there are lots of different fish in surigao that are not poisonous ?. If you dont know how to cook it right, then dont eat it. the japanese are expert in cooking butete, maybe you can text them how to cook it. That is their delicacy .export it to japan it is very expensive there.
