Comment(s):

It is simple and natural recipe for milkfish. There are so many delicious dishes that we can make out of milkfish but I think grilling it still the best.

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.
Bangus (milkfish) can be bought in Filipino stores and whitefish, sea bass, mullet, butterfish or porgy may be substituted.
