dilis (deboned and dried)

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

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.
