The Bangus sa Tausi (Milkfish with Black Beans) recipe easy to cook and so good!

Comment(s):

Bangus sa Tausi is a fish stew made of previously-fried milkfish cooked in tomatoes, onions and tausi.

The Filipino national fish is milkfish. The milkfish is a national symbol of the Philippines, where it is called bangus. Because milkfish is notorious for being much bonier than other food fish in the country, deboned milkfish, or "boneless bangus", has become popular in stores and markets. You can, however, substitute its close relative, catfish, and get similar results.
