Baked Bangus(Milkfish)

Baked Milkfish or Bangus has been one of our families signature dishes. Here in the Philippines, we use the Milkfish or Bangus, as it is the National Fish and is very common in the region. The Bangus or Milk fish is rich in Folate, Vitamin A, B, and a good source of protein. There are many ways to prepare this type of fish, either by frying, grilling, steaming or baking. In this recipe, we’re going to share with you a quick and simple recipe that is very easy to prepare without compromising the flavor. This dish is best paired with white rice and stir-fried vegetables.
