    • Clean bangus but do not scrape scales.
    • With a sharp knife slit the back to make an opening up to the stomach.

    • Wash the fish and sprinkle with salt. Mix onions and tomatoes together.
    • Season with salt and vetsin. Stuff the mixture inside the bangus (milkfish).
    • Rub the fish with 2 tbps. vegetable oil before grilling┬áto enhance flavor.
    • Wrap bangus in wilted banana leaves.
    • Grill on hot charcoal for 1/2 hour turning the fish on the other side to avoid burning the skin.
