How to cook Bistik na Bangus (Milkfish Steak)
- 1 pound boneless bangus (milkfish) belly, cut into serving pieces
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 4 tablespoon, calamansi juice or lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 5 tablespoon cooking oil
- 1 head garlic, peeled and minced
- 2 large onions, cut into rings
- In a large bowl, put the boneless bangus belly, soy sauce, calamansi, and season with black pepper.
- Cover the bowl and let marinate the fish in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
- Heat cooking oil in a frying pan. Fry the garlic in the oil just until toasted. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
- In a frying pan, heat the oil and stir fry the onion rings until soft.
- Then lightly fry the onion rings. Do not overcook. About a minute in the hot oil is enough. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
- Over medium high heat, fry the fish until lightly crisp and golden. Flip halfway through cooking to brown both sides evenly.
- When all the fish has been cooked, stir fry the garlic in the remaining oil.
- Pour in the marinade and let it boil for about 1 minute. Add the fried fish and let it boil for about 2 minute.
- Arrange the fish slices on a plate, top it with the onion rings, and pour the sauce over them and sprinkle the toasted garlic.
