Comment(s):

Paksiw na Bangus also known as Milkfish Stewed in Vinegar is the easiest and most common way of cooking Bangus (Milkfish) in the Philippines. In cooking Paksiw you can also use other fish like tuna, mullet, tilapia, galunggong or dalagang bukid if bangus is not available.

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.
