    How to cook afritadang bangus:

    • Clean the bangus, remove the internal organs and gills. Slice the bangus into 4 to 5 pcs.
    • Rub with salt and set aside for at least ten minutes.
    • Fry the fish and cover the frying pan because oil has a tendency to splatter.
    • When it turns golden brown, remove from oil and set aside.
    • Fry the rest of the bangus until every fish is already fried.
    • On the frying pan where you fried the bangus, remove the oil and transfer to a container and leave at least 1 tablespoon on the frying pan.
    • Saute garlic, onion and tomatoes. Stir-fry for at least 2 minutes or until they are cooked.
    • Then add the tomato sauce, carrots, bell pepper and simmer until the liquid evaporates or until the consistency is thick.
    • Add the green peas and fried bangus and simmer for at least half a minute.
    • Season with patis, ginisa mix and sugar and adjust the amount if necessary.
