Oven Baked Stuffed Bangus Recipe (Filipino Milkfish)

Oven Baked Stuffed Bangus Recipe (Filipino Milkfish)

Likely the most popular fish in the Philippines, Whitefish, or Bangus as it is called is found throughout the islands and is often considered to be the unofficial national fish. And this Rellenong Bangus Recipe – Oven Baked Stuffed Bangus is among the most popular.

Bangus itself has a relatively neutral taste which lends itself well to complementary pairings and dishes like this Oven Baked Bangus recipe where it won’t take center stage, but rather complement the dish as a whole. Otherwise it does well to be marinated with vinegar and garlic before being fried.

Bangus Recipe Preparation

This preparation works out to be a rather healthy meal full of vegetables, and baked in the oven rather than fried in oil.

If you’re curious about it, the belly fat of the fish is considered to be the tastiest, and most prized part of the fish. In fact you can find Bangus belly separate from the fish for purchase, but you’re obviously going to pay a premium for this cut.

And since you’re preparing a feast, you should probably also be making Chicken and Pork Adobo to go with your baked bangus. And for your sides some Loubieh Bi Zait (green beans) and a nice sticky toffee pudding . I know, those last two are by no means Filipino dishes, but give them a shot anyways.

And if you’re looking for something easier and deliciously filling, try my slow cooker Kare-Kare recipe!

Pairs well with Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio.
