Ingridents: Serve 6
½ cup chopped basil leaves
¼ cup cream cheese, softened
¼ cup kesong puti
6 bangus bellies
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup breadcrumbs
½ cup butter, melted
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
¼ cup olive oil

  • In a bowl, combine basil, cream cheese and kesong puti. Set aside
  • Make a slit down the center of each bangus belly to form a pocket. Season with salt and pepper. Divide basil mixture equally into six and fill each slit of bangus with basil mixture.
  • In another bowl, combine breadcrumbs, butter and parmesan cheese. Mix thoroughly. Top each belly with the breadcrumbs mixture.
  • Press lightly so mixture adheres. Chill in refrigerator about 1 hour.

  • Preheat oven to 400F
  • Arrange bangus belly skin side down on prepared baking sheet. Bake for about 12 to 15 minutes or until center becomes opaque. Transfer to plates and serve.
