Boneless Bangus a la Pobre

Bangus is one of our staple fish at home. It’s a versatile fish and can be found easily anywhere. This is one of my boys’ favorite dish. Plus, I like making this since it’s so fast and easy! Perfect for when I have a busy day ahead.


• 2 whole fresh boneless Bangus fish cut up into 3 parts (head, belly, tail), if your Bangus is small, 2 cuts is fine.

• Oil for frying

• 4 small red onions/ 2 big ones sliced into circles

• 1/2 head crushed garlic

• 2tsp Calamansi juice/ lime

• 2 TBSP Soy Sauce

• 1 1/2 Cup water

• 1 1/2 TBSP Brown Sugar

• Salt and pepper to taste

1. Marinate Bangus for atleast 30 minutes before frying. I marinate my bangus with some Calamansi, garlic salt, crushed garlic, fresh ground pepper, and some soy sauce. I don’t have measurements for these as I just sprinkle them on the Bangus and massage it onto the little nooks and crannies.

2. Deep fry the Bangus and set aside.

3. In another pan, sauté crushed garlic and onions until softened.

3. Add in: 2 tsp Calamansi juice, 2TBSP Soy sauce, 1 1/2 cup water, 1 1/2 TBSP Brown Sugar

4. Bring this to a boil then to a simmer.

5. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

6. Put the fried bangus back into the sauce and simmer together for 2 minutes. Make sure the Bangus is coated with the sauce.

7. Enjoy with hot rice 🙂 Yum!!!
