Steamed Bangus with Black Bean Garlic Sauce Recipe

Serves/Makes: 3 - 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 2 bangus (milkfish) belly fillets, each cut into six squares
  • 2 tablespoons black bean garlic sauce (or the equivalent if using tausi and garlic)
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped
  • 1 bird’s eye chili, thinly sliced
  • 2 - 3 scallions, chopped
  • Sesame seed oil
  • Crispy onion slices, to garnish
How to cook Steamed Bangus with Black Bean Garlic Sauce:
  • Start boiling water in the steamer.
  • Rub the black bean sauce on the cut fish fillets.
  • Take two shallow heat-proof bowls and lightly brush the bottoms with sesame seed oil.

  • Place the bowls in separate steamer baskets and steam over briskly boiling water for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat. Drizzle with a little sesame seed oil. Sprinkle with crisp onion slices.

Comments:

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, mullet, butterfish or porgy may be substituted.
