Pinatisang Bangus (Milkfish Soup with Fish Sauce) Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4 - 5 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 pounds bangus (milkfish) belly fillets
  • 8 shallots, peeled
  • 1/2 whole garlic bulb, crushed, peeled and finely minced
  • 2 to 3 tomatoes, diced
  • 8 to 10 cups fish broth
  • Patis (fish sauce) to taste
  • Freshly grated black pepper to taste
  • 1 bunch green onions, cut into 1 inch lengths
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons cooking oil
How to cook Pinatisang Bangus (Milkfish Soup with Fish Sauce):
  • Cut the bangus belly fillets into serving size pieces. (How large or how small depends entirely on you. I normally cut each fillet into four portions.)
  • Heat the cooking oil in a pot. Saute the garlic, shallots and tomatoes for a couple of minutes or until the tomatoes start to soften and render color.
  • Pour in the fish broth. Season with patis. Bring to the boil.
  • Add the bangus belly fillets, allow to broth to boil again, lower the heat and simmer for about 3 minutes. (That’s really all it takes to cook the fish. Most people add the fish to the pot before pouring in the liquid but when you’re cooking fillets as thin as bangus belly, that’s a sure way of overcooking the fish. I like my fish to cook almost as soon as it goes into the pot so that there is less chance that the meat will fall apart.)
  • Add the green onions to the pot. Sprinkle with pepper. Stir gently and simmer for about 30 seconds longer.
  • Serve the Pinatisang Bangus (Milkfish Soup with Fish Sauce) hot with freshly steamed white rice.
