How to cook Inihaw na Bangus or Grilled stuffed milkfish

Inihaw na bangus recipe is one of the most popular Filipino dish for every occasion or Pulutan for those who loves to drink beer with friends.

One of the best ways of cooking fresh Bangus is grilling with onion, tomato, ginger and bagoong alamang stuffing wrapped in aluminum foil. The aluminum foil traps all the juices from the fish and the stuffing’s which then steam infused all the flavors of the fish. If aluminum foil is not available, here’s another method. Sew the edge of fish with #20 sewing thread to bind all the ingredients inside then fish then grill it in low charcoal heat.  The fish is moderately charred outside but really moist inside.
