Daing na Bangus

Imagine my surprise when hubby brought home “something fishy” on his return trip from an errand in our friendly neighborhood Asian grocery…

Whaddyaknow? It’s bangus (milkfish)! And what’s more, it’s been perfectly cleaned, filleted, vacuum-packed and … best of all – DEBONED!!! 😆 (*doing the dance of joy now*) At SR19 (USD5), this baby’s a  s-t-e-a-l  too!

You see, although we can readily get milkfish in most groceries and fish markets here, it’s very rare that they come deboned – so getting our hands on this was a real find!

What to do with a deboned milkfish?

Why, what our Pinoy tastebuds have been craving for for the longest time…

Daing na bangus (milkfish seasoned with vinegar, soy sauce, pepper and garlic)! Yum! :mrgreen:

And to relish the “full gastronomic daing experience”, we just had to go the full mile and throw in the whole ensemble…

Suffice it to say our Pinoy cravings were more than satisfied that day. 😉

Kudos to the Filipino Food Lovers site for this delicious recipe and to our dear cousin-in-law Ge for the homemade atchara (pickled vegetables).

  1. Sta. Cruz ba brand nyan? 😉 I buy both marinated (4 in a pack) and plain (plain daw, 1 lang but bigger).Haays, sarap ng kain with kamatis!

    Hi G! Lola Nor yung brand. It says Bonuan bangus daw siya… only comes in packs of 1 at plain lang… pero good enough for our purposes! Sarap nga! 😉


  2. sarap! may nabibili din kami dito pero ngayon walang pasok sa school kaya di ko mahagilap yung nagtitinda…hehehe.

    Try mo sa Oriental Store, Ann, doon kasi kami nakakabili. 🙂

    Hon, your first photo was not so appetizing. Buti na lang the cooked version looks so yummy!

    Thanks to that Asian store we finally got the chance to satisfy our long time craving for deboned milkfish. I saw a new batch of seasoned fish in our ref – looking forward to it!
