How to Make Daing na Bangus or Marinated Milkfish
Daing na Bangus, also known as Marinated Milkfish, is a popular Filipino dish loved for its simplicity and bold flavors. To prepare this delicacy, fresh milkfish is butterflied, removing the innards and scales, then marinated in a mixture of vinegar, garlic, salt, and pepper. The marinating process imparts a tangy and savory taste while preserving the fish.

After marinating for several hours, the milkfish is sun-dried to perfection, allowing the flavors to intensify and the fish to acquire a firm and chewy texture. Daing na Bangus is typically fried until golden brown and served with steamed rice, sliced tomatoes, and a side of vinegar dipping sauce, creating a delightful and satisfying Filipino meal.
