Notes:

The Filipino Bangus En Tocho recipe easy to prepare and so good!

Bangus En Tocho, or simply Tochong Bangus is an old Filipino dish that is made with milkfish, fermented tofu (tahure), and black beans (tausi).

Bangus En Tocho is a Filipino dish that in translates in English to “milkfish with black beans and soy cakes.” Bangus, or milkfish, is the national fish of the Philippines and cooking it with black beans and soy is only one of many ways to prepare this fish. While tochong bangus does include a few standard ingredients, a variety of recipes is available with differing ingredients and amounts. Because bangus is specific to Indo-Pacific regions, it may be difficult to find. You can, however, substitute its close relative, catfish, and get similar results.

Tip:

*You may substitute Canadian whitefish for the milkfish (bangus), although most Oriental markets carry frozen milkfish.
