dilis (deboned and dried)

Boneless dried dilis sold along the roadside stalls in Brgy. Damortis, Sto. Tomas, Pangasinan.

boneless dilis – (bon-les di-lis; Tagalog dried fish) [n.] deboned milkfish.

Pinoys are fond of calling deboned fish or meat  as boneless. It is actually a misnomer to call this fish "boneless" because all kinds of dilis (anchovy) have bones. 

The fish is however deboned and decapitated when processed into dried dilis. Thus, it should be called deboned dried dilis.
