Fried Bangus Back Fillet

January 19th, 2017


We love Bangus Back Fillet, that part of the milkfish sliced as fillet. It is fleshy, tasty and boneless. It is a flexible dish that can be cooked in different ways and one of it is by frying.


•Bangus Back Fillet cut in half

•a little cooking oil, soy sauce and/or oyster sauce (these will depend on the pan you are using and how many fillets you will cook. I use approximately a T of each for 3 full fillets or 6 half fillets)

•ground pepper and garlic powder

•1t Balsamic Vinegar (optional)


  1. Heat the oil and soy sauce on a pan.
  2. Add the bangus back fillet with the skin sticking on the pan. Fry for a minute or two. Or 3.
  3. Add the oyster sauce while frying.
  4. Turn the fillet around when the underside has been cooked through.
  5. Cook for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Add balsamic vinegar. You can opt to cover the pan.
  7. Turn the fillet around and dash with ground black pepper and garlic powder.
  8. Serve warm.

You can opt to add roasted garlic bits or onion rings fried with the fillet.
